Mosaic Monday: San Diego


San Diego - total relaxation and not enough time to take it all in. The experience of my first hot air balloon ride - and I would do again in a heartbeat! The ocean is always calling my name. Gaslamp Quarter - neat boutiques, unique resturants, artsy shops, the wharf, boats, ships, and the trolley rides. Balboa Park - with 15 museums and 9 theatres and performing arts centers, Balboa Park is San Diego's cultural heart. The Old Globe Theatre, many museums, and weather to tickle your fancy!

Your mosaic is gorgeous and should be a travel postcard. Just looking at your selection of beautiful photographs makes me want to visit.

Happy Mosaic Monday.

I would go up in a balloon in a minute. The pictures are outstanding. I love the one you chose for the center. San Diego so full of religious history and atmosphere.

These photos are just breathtaking! You captured the sights perfectly! I think the hot air balloon ride would be the highlight.... Sounds like you had a great time.

Beautiful San Diego! I agree, these could be postcard shots. I love the framing on the captain's wheel. It makes me want to go sailing! Lovely mosaic!

We were lucky enough to stay at the Hotel Del Coronado when our girls were young. Lots of fun things to do. Loved the zoo, of course, and the beautiful Point Loma. Great photos!

This is a great look at San Diego. The lantern is awesome. Were the lily pads really white??

Journey said...

Lori E. - the lily pads were light green - they look lighter in the sunlight. Thought it was a neat photo, however.

Your mosaics just took my breath away. I'd love to visit San Diego. Beautiful. Thanks for stopping by A Day in the Life. I've enjoyed doing the mosaics for the first time today.

Your photo collection of this mosaic is just wonderful. How lovely to be in a hot balloon ride! I've been only to a tethered ride in Temecula!
