 this building in beautiful Balboa Park in San Diego with several museums, an outdoor concert place, restaurants, and a corner with art shops. Everything you  may want to do for the weekend. 
Another very popular feature where you always will find people milling around in the park is the fountain.Or, is it because the ice cream and the hot dog stand?

I havve a couple of photos of my mother and I in front of that fountain with my little dog. I was in college @ SDSU then, almost 40 years ago. It was a bright sunny day as always in S.D. I miss it so sometimes but it's changed and I heard they even moved one of my favorite places, Bazaar del Mundo, out of Old Towne. Travesty!

Clytie said...

Ebie said...

great to see a fountain. Ours are closed for the season now. :(

California Girl,
That fountain sounds like a good memory - maybe you should go back for a little vacation and visit your fave places...We have some family photos in front of that fountain as well:) Yes, a lot of changes in Old Town.

Do you know where Bazaar del Mundo moved to?

You have seen that right, Leovi:)

I like the additive "with an attitude":)

Thank you -it magnified it with photoshop to satisfy my curiosity!

Indeed, the fountain is so vibrant! Many weddings are photographed in this park.

The following are very fun, especially with kids:
Seaport village, Balboa Park, Seaport (hefty entrance fee), airplane-carrier (older models of planes), the harbor has short harbor cruises, etc.

J Bar,
Thank you!

Nature Step,
I understand, nothing more diappointing than a fountain that does not spray water!
Because of the winter?

Lovely shots!

jeannette said...

Thank you:) Saw that you've posted some interesting things on your reading blog. Because of the high no. of followers, was it at one time a blog of note?

Thank you! You have a darling blog -I loved the post about little cutesy reading a book to Bentley.

Rebecca said...

I guess you could say a fountain is a perfect place for a hot dog & ice cream stand!

Becky and Gary said...

I like the architecture above the window, and the palm reflection is cool! Love all kinds of fountains too.
Of course you can use my photo. If you could I'd like to see a shot of the pcture when you are finished.
Thanks. Have a great rest of the week.

Cildemer said...

Jeannette, I was just there for a conference and although I have seen San Diego many times, each visit shows me new vistas not previously seen. The fact that there is no shortage of excellent food is a plus as well!

Bon weekend,

Dimple said...

I like the reflected palm leaves in the first shot!

Sar@h said...

Nice blue window and subtil reflection.

Beautiful reflections and "The Lion and Lamb" is also very beautiful!

jeannette said...

That must be why San Diego is so popular:) Have a great weekend!
