On our last day in San Diego we drove up the coast and found the Torey Pines Glider Port. They were doing tandem jumps off the cliffs above the ocean. they would very effortlessly step off tera firma and float off into the air. It was neat to watch.

While in San Diego we went to see the USS Midway aircraft carrier permanently docked in San Diego Bay. It was neat and huge! Besides all the planes they had a couple models of aircraft carriers, the details of one are in the mandala above.

The Staghorn Ferns in Balboa Park at the botanic garden area and in the San Diego Zoo were huge. 3 and 4 times the size of the one I am growing. Thought I would do a series on them. The one above is from my plant. I liked the square pattern in this Mandala that formed in the middle from one of the outward growing fronds, the water droplets are on one of the base fronds.

Just came back from a trip to San Diego, we went to the Cabrillo National Monument to see the tidal pools on the ocean side of Point Loma and passed Rosecrans National Cemetery with rows and rows of white headstones. San Diego has a big Naval pressence. You can see the bay and downtown San Diego on the edges of the Mandala after following the radiating lines of headstones. The cemetery caps the peninsula, out to sea it looks like a solid line of white.
