The first part of our trip was wonderful. To make a very bad pun, it literally went South from there on. One really fun day in San Diego,and then both kids got sick and we mostly spent the next 3 days sleeping in our hotel room. I did try to take them out for a short outing some days, but it didn’t work so well. Some days I drew in Old Town as they slept in the room. Here are some sketches from those days.
This gorgeous building in Balboa Park houses the Museum of Man. I will have to go back to San Diego to see it!
And a few sketches from Old Town, San Diego: The brightly colored trolleys and the brilliant cobalt skies.
A pretty grand tree.
Terracotta roofs, whitewashed walls and cactus work so well together.
Did I say I am obsessed with palm trees in SoCal? We have palm trees here in the Bay Area but they never look as happy as SoCal trees. (Speaking of SoCal and palm trees, you do know Virginia Hein‘s beautiful work don’t you?)
Here are some trees I drew.
SoCal is lovely, but most of our time on this trip was spent like this:
I guess that means we will have to go back.
