Lily pond in Balboa Park. Isn’t the Spanish Colonial architecture amazing?
Thanks for the kind comment and visit!
Lovely weather you’re having. You might not have noticed the envy in my writing:)
Oh no, has your weather taken a turn already? We are still having summer here, and my husband keeps wondering when it will cool off. I may have to take him up into the mountains for a bit of autumn. (This is his first time living in California.)
We loved Balboa Park when we lived in SD so many years ago. Thanks for the memories
Hey, you’re welcome! I love going there and will be doing more than one post about it.
Before I even read I thought it looks a bit like the Alhambra in Granada, Spain.
I so regret not going there when we were in Spain!
Love Spanish architecture…how old is this one?
The buildings were erected in the early 1900s for the Panama-California Exposition in 1914. Thanks for stopping by.
I remember being there for a very brief afternoon and thought it was lovely. Was the building originally a mission?
No, for the Panama-California Exposition. I’ll write more about it at a future date.
The architecture is amazing! Great photo, Carole …
Thanks, Cheryl. I love this architecture.
Gorgeous photo – taken at a perfect time of day with just the right amount of sun and shadow. Looks even better than in person!
Thanks so much, Patti. I was worried there was too much light, but the response here and on Flickr has been really positive. A nice surprise.
Beautiful capture of one of my favorite places. I used to lived in San Diego and would go to Balboa Park often. Lovely place.
Thanks for the visit and nice comment.
I haven’t been there in ages, but I love Balboa Park. Thanks for the photo!
