What happens when you go from the west coast to the east coast? It's 1:30 am and my body thinks it's 10:30 pm. Would that it were! The climate in San Diego is pleasant and as I walked around downtown, I took a few photos that had observers scratching their heads as I clicked. I am irresistably drawn to things like this. (Ahem - note the spa manicure on the toes to the left.) On our second trip to Balboa Park, the arboretum was open (see picture on previous post) and we were in a magical, tropical garden. I was so overwhelmed that I almost didn't take any pictures. This is Echinacea. And I have no idea what the other leaf is, but if you care, you can read the label. Apart from going to Balboa park and seeing the museums and plants, there isn't a lot to do in downtown San Diego. Even the Gas Lamp district seems to be mostly restaurants and condos. However, I did come away with two tjaps for doing batik. One is wood with copper and the other is all copper. Both are heavy. And both will wait till I have time to use them. Can I stand it till I have a spare hour? Meantime, I had better try to get back on a normal schedule and go to bed so I can wake up in time for my early morning appointment.
