We have our Christmas lights on to try and brighten up a very dunkel Beluga. I think showing you pictures of our sunny, warm visit to Balboa Park earlier this week will lighten the day!
We enjoyed the famous Botanical Building, inside and out. Banks of Poinsettias were everywhere amongst the tropical foliage.
A sign in the middle of a display of carnivorous plants caught Dave's eye. The plants looked brown and wilted, the sign explained their condition. Dave said he understands completely.......
|Dormant Dave, this explains it all!|
We haunted the streets of the Spanish Village Arts center, looking for a particular piece of pottery. No luck but we had fun exploring the artist's studios.

Dave enjoyed our walk around the Park, he enjoyed seeing all the plants and fragrant roses, all the interesting buildings. But, most of all, he enjoyed his lunch, he hummed all through the meal. I'm not sure what he was more excited about, the hot dog itself? the copious layer of onions? the catsup? the curly fries? He was smiling when we left the cafe, that's all I know.
