San Diego: Day Four

On Day Four we really ended
up with most of another day
to enjoy. And the weather
was beautiful...again.
Sunny and 85.

Even though we lived in San Diego for 3 years, I do not remember
spending much time in Balboa Park.

Funny thing, the first 2 years we lived in San Diego we lived in
Hillcrest, which borders Balboa Park. Anyway, I remember going
to the world famous zoo and all that, but we apparently missed
out on all the great museums on El Prado. I need to check around
and see if this stuff was actually there when we lived in SD... I can't
believe we missed it. Every visit to San Diego should include a visit
to Museum Row and Prado Restaurant.

I spent a good deal of time in the Museum of Photographic
Arts (MOPA) while Michael was on a conference call.
There were so many museums we did not have time for--we
will have to return.

There was this great walkway lined with
Palm Trees so Michael and I decided to snap
pictures of each other.
I really wanted a picture of the two of us together,
but my camera is heavy and difficult to operate
so I didn't want to ask a stranger to take our
picture. My arms are so short, so I had Michael
hold the camera... I really wanted to get that
beautiful Playhouse in the background on the left,
but we ended up with the white car. It is really
hard to take a picture like this, but we both
managed a smile and the focus isn't bad....
I took this last one out the window of our
airplane on the way back to Portland. I
think it is amazing how you cannot see
how amazingly dirty the window was.
Anyway, a lovely ending to a wonderful week!
