San Diego, CA – Balboa Park (HDR)

I was in San Diego last week and had an early AM free.  I was staying only a mile from Balboa Park.  Never visited.  So I arrived around 6:30 AM.  It was nice and quiet.  Only people jogging or walking their dogs.  The grounds are beautiful!!  The architecture is wonderful!  I wish I had more time there…many places to stop in and see.  I have a cool lily pond shot coming soon.  This shot is from a hallway near the entrance.  It has a great Spanish look to it. San Diego is a great little city.  We were there for 2 days and it actually rained 70% of the time!  Yes, it can rain in Southern California!  Don’t worry if you are visiting San Diego, sun is much more likely!  Maybe a little Marine Layer (clouds in the morning til noon).

Info from the web:  Balboa Park – the nation’s largest urban cultural park. Home to 15 major museums, renowned performing arts venues, beautiful gardens and the San Diego Zoo, the Park has an ever-changing calendar of museum exhibitions, plays, musicals, concerts, and classes—all in the beautiful and timeless setting of this must-see San Diego attraction.
