Rich and I are currently traveling cross-country. We're taking the time to explore all of the places we've talked about going to but just hadn't gotten around to yet. First up was San Diego, and it definitely didn't disappoint. It's incredibly gorgeous, and reminds me of San Francisco - but warmer!
We really only spent about 24 hours in San Diego, so we decided to go to just a couple of the awesome spots we'd heard about. These photos are from La Jolla Cove. This place takes your breath away, and as soon as we saw it we decided we'd be back someday.
The other place we knew we wanted to check out was Balboa Park. It was built for the 1915-16 Panama-California Exposition to say hey, look how awesome San Diego is! I think they did their job right. It also made me feel at home since San Francisco's version is the Palace of Fine Arts and was built for the same exposition. Balboa Park let me imagine what the area around the Palace of Fine Arts would have been like before they took down the surrounding structures to gain more space for housing.
Balboa Park also comes complete with a desert garden, and a rose garden.
Stay Classy, San Diego.
