After a few days in Las Vegas we went on to our next stop San Diago. First we met up with JJs grandparents and her uncle who would join us for a few days. Next we rented a car for our time in southern California.
Our first day after arrival was spent in the Balboa Park. Balboa Park is a 1,200-acre urban cultural park in San Diego and it is the location of 17 different museums as well as the San Diego Zoo.
Our first suprise when arriving was a military ceremony. It looks like a class of medical staff from the Navy finished and we could listen in to some of the speeches.
After listening for a while we continued to the main plaza. Since we only had the day we decided to visit the San Diego Museum of Art, which is probably the most popular of all.
The museum also put up some interactive stations to draw cerain objects. Here it was an Agyptian statue. With a family full of artists we decided to stay and give it a try
Once we werde done in the museum we split up started exploring more outside.
After eveyone had enough walking for the day to took a break at the Japanese Garden and then headed on to the beach.
At night JJ and I went out on our own to get a drink explore downtown a bit.
We ended up in some bar that is doing dueling pianos. Two players taking song requests with lots of crwod interaction. Lots of fun.
The next day we went out together to Conorado Beach. It has beautiful long beaches and some nice looking resorts. Since it's right next to a military Navy base we could see several jets with supersonic speed passing by.
