 Balboa Park


Land set aside by Alta California authorities 1835, this 1,400-acres of pueblo land in San Diego was designated to be used for the public's recreational purposes, Balboa Park is the oldest and largest urban cultural park in the United States dedicated to public recreational usage. in North America. A must see on any visit to San Diego.Balboa Park honors Vasco Nunez de Balboa, the first European explorer to sight the Pacific Ocean.


In 1911 groundbreaking ceremonies and construction began with a military mass in a Balboa Park Canyon to hold an Exposition for the opening of the Panama Canal. On August 23, 1912 the Spreckels Theater opened with 1915 seats.



Balboa Park’s historic structures were built as temporary buildings for the Panama Exposition but San Diego has preserved all those structures and to this day remains one of the largest and beautiful city parks.

We will spend quite a bit of time exploring this vast park, making memories and taking photos too.

At 5 a.m. when we landed in the Atlanta airport, it was quiet as a mouse. No one in who lives in the paradise of San Diego, books a flight to the Caribbean because we have everything they have. It’s only East coasters that go there. So we had to take a red eye into Atlanta so that we could catch one of the 2 daily flights to the Caribbean.

Michael was laying across several airport chairs and I snapped this photo. It was his first time EVER on an airplane and his first passport and many other firsts. I’ve been besties with this “little boy” since the day he was born and I wanted to make one last one on one memory with his 6” self before he headed off to college and became an adult. Bruce Macdonald, a Master who captures memories, turned all those precious thoughts into this masterpiece.
