It was clear most of the way and could see the Colorado River from the plane, so I knew when we were in California. It got foggy as we approached San Diego. I thought we ended up on a San Francisco plane by mistake. (The next stop on our flight was San Jose. Yes, I know the way to San Jose).
The Westgate Hotel is a grand old hotel downtown. The trolley runs behind it on C Street. Horton Plaza is across the street.
Elaine, my Mom and I took the bus to Balboa Park, took the tram around Balboa Park and went to the San Diego Museum of Art.
The staff there is really nice and helpful. They had an exhibit on Buddhist statues in China and Japanese silk painting.
Balboa Park is beautiful and you can spend your entire San Diego vacation there. More later.
