"What's up with THAT?", I asked in utter amazement.
While we were waiting for an empty spot in the parking lot, I first saw the trolley. I went out of the car, and shot a pic, before it would take off again.
But then my eye caught....this. The trees all around me were blooming. But that's not possible! It's only the first week of February! "Yup," said the sun, "It is, because I have been shining for a few days."
Having recuperated from this little trauma, we got our stuff out of the car, and started walking. Balboa Park is full of musea, a botanical building, eating places, an artist corner of shops. Along this road are always some musicians, and artists. Occasionally Native American dancers, or jugglers. Children love this walk way, because there is always something fun to see or hear.
A mix of Rococo and Mexican building styles. San Diego is about an hour from the border with Mexico, so there are many Mexican influences. Actually, they were here first, as I was told. Click on pics to see all the details.
This is the fountain area at the end of the walk way. A popular place for visitors to take pics.
People sit, watch and relax.
Hearing about snow and ice storms, about people without electricity trees falling over, I did not have the heart to show you what we saw when we went to San Diego the weekend before Valentine's Day weekend.
Even though it was only the beginning of February, it looked like Spring had arrived in Southern California.
