Glad we came across the sculpture in Balboa park. It was very cool to check out and see and it's free! They have tons of sculptures and you can get up close and personal too.

I enjoyed having dinner at the Panama Cafe in Balboa Park. During dinner one could see the amazing sculptures at the sculpture garden. There are just a few pieces but quite nice to see especially with the changing sky that day with the interesting clouds....More
