Heather and I spent part of the day today wandering around Balboa Park. There was quite a bit going on. We stopped in to check out the House of Ireland at the International Cottages - today was the day they do their annual Lawn Program, with Irish dancers and food. This year they had an Irish stew, which we followed up with a particularly good Bailey's brownie.
We found this on our way from the parking lot to the International Houses, and since it's green it will have to suffice, since I didn't get any pictures worth posting of the Irish celebrations.
While we were waiting for the dancing to get started we walked over to the San Diego Museum of Art to check out the two newest exhibits.
The exhibit with the sculptures from the Buddhist cave temples is very nicely done. It's only here until late May, and very much worth the time to see it. By the way, no photography is allowed in the special exhibit - as I was told right after I got this shot of the entrance.
On our way back to the International Houses we stopped in for a little walk around the Japanese Friendship Garden.
This is great time to walk through the garden, with the wisteria in bloom.
No matter what time of year you go to Balboa Park there is always something interesting to see.
