I planned to spend the day split between Balboa Park and the San Diego Zoo. I was so excited that I arrived 45 minutes too early. I literally had the park to myself which was so peaceful. Walking around I was assaulted by the scents of different flowers that were in the park and my allergies didn't even bother me.

At 9 am I went into the zoo along with a thousand school kids :( so much for my peace :(. The Zoo was not a huge one as far as the variety of animals went but was very well laid out and you could get around the Zoo in a day without killing the kids. They even had a Panda display but they (2) were sleeping and not worth taking a picture of. The Polar Bears though were exciting as there were three and were moving around and I got a few good shots.

My camera did not like the mesh cages that held the animals  as it focused on the mesh rather than the animals or the Plexiglas windows which reflected everyone looking at the animals so pictures are scarce. Still there are a variety of pictures I took today loaded.

After the Zoo I went to view the museums and art galleries and found out how much it cost to get into them - I wanted to see Leonardo da Vinci's inventions that was being held at the Air & Space museum - so I asked the cost at the tourist centre and found out I'd have to pay $15 to get in and an additional $10 for the special exibition - well after paying for the Zoo I was not too flush with cash so that was out instead I went to the free stuf.f.

I will leave tomorrow with memories of a good day spent in San Diego.  I hope to make Santa Barbara but we'll see..
