The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.” – G.K. Chesterton

Snapshots of San Diego

To conclude my posts on our summer trip to San Diego, here are a few random snapshots that I took while exploring this gorgeous city. We really enjoyed San Diego - the friendly people, beautiful blue skies, fantastic sandy beaches - and I will remember it as the American city that is most similar to our home city of Perth down under. Three days weren't enough, and I will jump at the chance to go back there again.

Spotted the USS Midway Museum (a maritime museum on a ship!) from Broadway Pier where we boarded the ferry to Coronado:

A Red Trolley (not the shopping cart type) zooming past us:

The historic Balboa Theatre in the Gaslamp Quarter:

There were many historical buildings in the Gaslamp Quarter, and this particular one houses the Reading Cinema:

A large sign at the end of 5th Avenue where we ended our walk through the Gaslamp Quarter (from our hotel near Little Italy), and we had tasty tapas for dinner shortly after:

Enjoying the wide open space and the brilliant blue skies of Balboa Park while walking to San Diego Zoo from our downtown hotel (it took us an hour!):

Casa del Prado Theater in Balboa Park on our way to lunch:

An archway of a historical building in Balboa Park, also on our way to lunch:
