Scenes and People of Balboa Park, San Diego, California - 25th September 2005

On the last day of this particular trip to sunny San Diego, there's most of the day to mill around before taking back the hire-car, boarding a small plane for LA and then heading back over the Atlantic. Before the flight, there's a visit to Balboa Park - scene of Qualcomm's after-conference party featuring Huey Lewis and the News from a few months before, but this time in daylight
