Now that all the hype of journalspace returning in a somewhat acceptible form (we hope), I can now post some more pictures.
On every trip here to California I try to go to Balboa Park on a Sunday afternoon. I learned all my folk dancing up there and besides, it's a beautiful park, made in a quaint Spanish style. The buildings were originally built for the 1915 Exposition. Some have been long removed, others still exist.
In past years I have taken so many photos of the park. But I still can't resist. LOL
Yes, I did stop by the dancers, but so many I knew are no longer there or alive.... and it feels odd when of all the dancers, I'm one of the youngest! :-(
So I didn't stay long but walked through the park instead. As you can see from my past entries (before the JS ones), San Diego has so much to offer.... I dread having to leave it once again, back to the cold (temps were around -5°F the past days brrrrrr).
I again found some flowers that were begging to be photographed! I almost caught a hummingbird that was flying around those in the first picture, in fact, one bird made a low fly direct over my head!
These orchids were in the botanical garden house....
I almost went to visit the famous San Diego zoo, which is located in this park. I was already thinking about the cool picture motives I would find. Well, I walked over there, took one look at the entry fee.... and left in shock! $35 for a one-day pass!! You poor dear animals, no visit from me. *snif* I would have gone with $20, but not $35!
It's hard to believe I'll be leaving here in 4 days....
