Yesterday, live returned back to normal after the labor day weekend. I went to Balboa Park in San Diego, after a short stop at the local Dick Blick store. The park has beautiful buildings, most of the buildings are either from the 1915-1916 Panama California Exposition or from the 1935-1936 Pacific International Exposition.
I visited the visitor center for a map and a cup of coffee. First stop was the Timken Museum of Art, one of Vermeer's paintings (the woman in blue reading a letter ) is visiting from Amsterdam.
Next on my list was the botanical building and the waterlilies pond.
I walked thru a part of the park to the Spanish Village Arts center but did not visit any of the artists .. it was so hot... I will come back another time.
I visited the San Diego museum of art instead with a great exposition on Coney Is land. Nice and cool inside!
And on my way to the carpark I started this sketch of the Spreckels Organ Pavilion.
