Balboa Park

We've done many posts at our local parks in Downey. Today I spent the afternoon two hours south in San Diego. We explored Balboa Park. What an amazing place! There is so much to do and see. It is an urban, cultural park in the heart of downtown San Diego and it was packed with people walking, picnicking, biking and just wandering around—all enjoying the amazing sunny day.

In front of the National History Museum, the path is lined with cherry trees in full blossom. It was beautiful.

And, of course, there were street performers set up throughout the park. These two were my favorite of the day. I'm not sure what kind of music they performed, but it was intriguing—they were uniquely talented.
