Frivolous Friday! Balboa Park – an Adventure and a Quiz!

It’s Frivolous Friday!

Thought I would share some of the fun I squeezed in this week (in between all my portrait sessions and retouching work.)

Yep, this happened #1:

Have I mentioned lately how much I love Balboa Park?

(Always have,  always will!)

(Bonus points if you know where this was captured…?)

I’ve been at Balboa Park so many times in the past few weeks for Portrait Sessions and I always arrive early (just how I roll!) so I have time to stroll around….

There’s always something beautiful to see in Balboa Park – like a peek of our city from the Cabrillo Bridge.

Did you know there used to be a pond at the base of the bridge?   Instead of the 163 freeway?   Row boating was a fun pastime!

I thought I would take some photos to challenge you to a contest.  So keep clicking and tell me how many of these places you can name.

Tried something new while I was strolling around the park – a Lavender Iced Tea – from the cute little coffee cart next to the Prado Restaurant.

The drink was good and I’m glad I ordered it, but I won’t need to order it again, if you know what I mean.  😉

What can I say:  I’m Feeling Blessed!

And do you know what else I’m blessed by?     Capturing amazing moments for you to treasure for a lifetime!
