Balbo Park, San Diego

Balboa Park, San Diego

We spent last Saturday at Balboa Park in San Diego, California.  It was overcast and a little chilly, but it was a nice trip.  We hopped on the free tram from the parking lot and grabbed the seat with our back to the engine and it turned out to be the BEST seat because the heat emanating from the motor kept us warm!  On the way back, we were prepared to get the same warm seat and push old ladies out of the way if necessary.  Kidding.  Sort of.  The Botanical Garden there has some beautiful and interesting foliage – ripe for taking pictures – and there is a pond out front with some huge Koi fish.  We heard Hare Krishna’s singing, saw belly dancers and ate Kobe burgers at The Prado restaurant.  I really liked hearing bells ring from a church (or something) near by during out trek down a little palm tree path – it added a little something.  We were only there a few hours and it was getting dark, but I would really like to take the ‘Japanese Friendship Garden’ tour when we have more time.  Here are a few of my favorite shots.

Hi, I’m Cheryl, a.k.a. "CrazyDogMama". Welcome to my blog! Anything and everything goes here - seriously. I'm a super laid-back, non-traditional, 40-something introverted writer. My language can get a little colorful, I love horror movies, I pretty much live on coffee, chocolate and cigarettes and I'm not above writing about uncomfortable subjects. So, if you're good with that, take a look around and get to know me! Even if you're not, I try my best to entertain and offer up good advice occasionally, so hopefully there is a little something here for everyone.

This is my life.
