Balboa Park San Diego

Spreckles organ recently refurbished
I'm guessing this guy avoids speed bumps...
Santa with all his entourage

If you visit Santa Diego it's fair to say you will make balboa park one of the first stops on your itinerary and you won't be disappointed. Whether it's walking, museums, elevated views of the city from California Tower(be sure to book ahead at busy times as this is a star attraction), theatre or just relaxing with a glass of wine, there is enough going on to entertain you for at least a couple of days. I still haven't managed to fit in a performance at the round house ( the imitation of the London Shakespeare theatre) but maybe next time.

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla If you have come as a baker my blog is i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)
