Monday we finally remembered to set our alarm, and checked out of the hotel by 7am. We headed right for Balboa Park, and at this early hour the massive press of other tourists had yet to show up. We parked, and started meandering around.
I have to say, I was really impressed by this park. It is a photographers playhouse, with ridiculously ornate architecture all over the place.
Along with a very nifty reflecting pond:
And plenty of trees to take photos of:
We even managed to get a cutesy photo of us on the tree
As we got ready to leave the park we came upon a big fountain (apparently one that many people photograph), and decided to take our obligatory photos.
Oddly, as we are taking pictures a homeless man decided that he wanted to meander around the fountain. Figuring that he saw us there taking pictures, I decided he was fair game as a photographic subject:
After the fountain we found our way back to the car and headed over to meet Matt for breakfast, and then made the drive home.
Vacation successful. :)
