I went to my very favorite park in San Diego yesterday – Balboa Park. The park is so amazing, that I had to give you a glimpse of it, through this picture first:
The picture leads me to the question, do you like looking at the gate, through the gate or at what is on the other side of the gate? This was a hard one to decide yesterday, since I was in the Botanical Building and it was so filled with beauty that I did not want to leave it, nor did my little Chandra.
This picture was taken when we first headed to the Botanical Building, and of course I had to get my little one in the picture
As we got closer this is what it looked like
Here are some pictures of the flowers
However, the ornate fence beckoned me to go outside again
This is a very interesting looking bush outside the Botanical Building
Outside was just as lovely as inside the Botanical Gardens. This is the view looking out from the Botanical Gardens Building.
I zoomed in and got this picture
I either zoomed out or walked a little closer and got another picture
There were fish in the water, both big and small
There were ducks in the water
There was music in the air, as people all over the park were making this park even more beautiful if possible with their wonderful music.
As we walked away from the Botanical Building, I couldn’t help but think that Balboa Park is such a treasure, a park that needs to be on everyone’s list of places to visit when they come to San Diego. The visitors who come here will surely fall in love with Balboa Park, and will definitely want more than just a glimpse of the park – an entire day or perhaps two should be what you allot to just this park.
Here’s more of this beautiful park
However, I am going to save more pictures until next time. Happy February!
