Staycation - San Diego

The Arboretum at Balboa Park

Koi fish

Water Lilies
How I spent my summer vacation...

This year we stay-cationed, spending time in spots that tourists flock to in San Diego.  Balboa Park was one of them. It was great because we made a schedule and actually stuck loosely to it.

Balboa Park, especially the gardens and botanical building shown here (the Arboretum) is one of the most relaxing places to stroll through in the world.  The reflecting pond, with its turtles, water lilies, and koi fish, is so beautiful. I never tire of photographing it and seeing the ferns, orchids, and begonias inside the shady building.

I hope you're staying cool!
