We did a tourist day on Saturday and used public transportation to get to Balboa Park. Balboa was the site of a couple of expositions around 1915 and the buildings were built at that time. There are a lot of museums there but each of them cost extra so we opted to just walk around and look at gardens and the Artists' Market.
Dave actually has a tougher time walking than biking as his old basketball days have resulted in bad knees so we didn't stay for more than a few hours. We had given some thought to seeing the Aviary and the Hummingbird House in the San Diego zoo but after looking it up online, we choked at the cost: $48 per person so passed on that. Guess we'll have to keep our eyes open while we are biking and hope to see lots as we travel.
On Sunday, it rained most of the day so we again played tourist and hired a Uber car and went to the Gaslamp quarter. We saw a movie and sampled some different cuisines. Tomorrow we hope to be back on the bike and explore some more bike routes.
