Friday's with Jim and Ginger

What could possibly be better than Christmas time in San Diego? It is really America's finest city! We began the evening with dinner on the embarcadero at Anthony's. All the ships were decorated in lights and the glow on the harbor was beautiful. Next we did a little driving to see the houses decorated and finally ended up in Balboa Park.

Balboa Park is the most amazing place. The magnificent Spanish-Renaissance style of architecture was originally created for the first World's Fair in 1915. It is always fun to just walk around, but it takes on a special feeling at Christmastime. If you only see it in the summer, you are missing the fun of bundling up in coats and enjoying both the lights and displays. Of course, a favorite is the Old Globe with 'How the Grinch Stole Christmas".

Don't you wish Christmas could last a little longer? Maybe without all the hussle and bustle but a little more time to reflect and enjoy.



Merry Christmas!

Sounds like fun! I love Balboa Park. And you're right, San Diego is an awesome place to be at Christmas (or any time really).

Sounds wonderful! I think Rom and I need to stick with San Diego for our anniversary get-away. Los Angeles pales in comparison.

Hello, Ginger. "Next Blog" dropped me in here, and I must say, as a fellow San Diegan, and child of the '50s - 60s, I agree with the works. I think my wife will have great fun with this, and am flagging it for her, but I must say "right-on!" to ALL THE KIDS WHO SURVIVED. I do plan to quote it, plagarize it, and share it widely. It's a brilliant piece of writing, and I thank you for articulating what so many of us know inside. Keep enjoying; it's what we're here for...
