Hoping to find the sun and the heat in the midst of the coldest winter I ever experienced in California, we drove South to San Diego for 1 week.
On the program, the San Diego Zoo, Coronado Island, Balboa Park, and Mission Bay.
We had a great time at the zoo. It is the best one I have ever visited. We could not cover the whole park in one day but we managed to see all the animals we wanted to see.
Among many favorites, we really liked the abnormally hyper-active Koala, the playful Meerkats, and the snobbish but cool Zebra.
Balboa Park is a beautiful park with great museums. I highly recommend the Museum of Man that has great expositions on ancient American civilizations, ancient Egypt, and the evolution of man from origin to the future of genetic. I got to take a picture with some of our ancestors (or not).
We also visited the famous Coronado Island with the inevitable pictures in front of the Del.
