Time for another change of pace.
Day 7 – San Diego
Sauntered down to San Diego for a spot of sightseeing.
Balboa Park was the starting point. Buildings. Museums. All that fun stuff.
Highlight: Riding a shuttle bus with highly sensual smooth jazz.
Lowlight: 6 pounds for Dippin’ Dots.
Not to be confused with Belmont Park where the cred is.
Expected a similar affair to Santa Cruz, but it was a significantly smaller and quieter park. Only had 1 thing to do on my list and that 1 thing was open. Success!
There’s a nice little museum in the ticket office, showing a bit more respect for their history as well, rather than just painting a few facts on a cheap queueline wall like Santa Cruz.
Another fun tunnel start. They like this idea don’t they?
The actual ride was a bit weaker. Really crawling over those hills and crunching in those dips. S’alright though.
There’s the beach and sea. 2 in 1.
Then it was on to Point Loma. Wanted to go a bit further down to the end of the peninsula, but it was closed off due to a ‘government shutdown’. Assume Trump was up to something.
So this meant the most accessible part of the point was a load of military gravestones.
Giving the views over the city and the pacific a bit more of a sombre touch.
Up next – fish.
