San Diego is an easy place to see or do something. There’s the Zoo (a large one), Sea World, the beach and the beach at Mission Bay, Seaport Village, Old Town, Balboa Park, the Harbor, Little Italy, air craft carrier (museum – even though I’m not particularly interested in airplanes, I was in awe) of the Marines, and some other places. Not to forget : the entrance to Tijuana, Mexico. Take your pick:).
Since it’s only one and a half hour from us, we go there often. Except for holidays, because most of your time could be spent on looking for a parking place or to stand in line for something.
In this reflection hubby and some others are standing in (right) front of the candy store in Old Town San Diego. It looks like they have Hawaiian outfits on, but they’re actually candy containers inside the store. You also see the roof and a tree across the street from the candy store. There’s also a store you can watch taffy being made.
A few stores down is an awesome store for coffee beans and tea leaves. Of course we had to promise to send him the pic, to make it worth to him missing his Sunday sports game, lol. The pic below is the cash register modified for Mandarin Orange.
If you like to eat authentic Mexican food at reasonable prices, Old Town is the place!
The trumpet-like Brugmansia flowers in front of the Botanical building in Balboa park.
In the Botanical (open air) building is a large selection of orchids.
At the and of the “street” with performers, this large refreshing fountain in Balboa Park in the hot sun.
we turn to the left to get an ice cream and visit the artist village.
waiting for the concert to begin
Surprizing how many of these seats will be taken when the organist starts playing. Often Sebastian Bach.
Organ is not my favorite instrument, but the compose Johann Sebastian Bach is my favorite composer.
Turning from orange to golden
We were standing for a long time in the parking lot taking these sunset clouds after our meal at the Italian, and people smiling, laughing and getting out of our way so we could keep taking these pics. The end of a relaxing sunny afternoon in San Diego!
