#145) Ruben H. Fleet Science Center

There are lots of hands on exhibits for kids (and adults) here. There is also an awesome IMAX domed theatre - the first to combine a planetarium and an IMAX dome.

On this day, we saw Tornado Alley and had a two and a half hour visit to the science exhibits.

My son, Ian, and the orange mystery things - The idea is to figure out how they fit together.

#144) Laurel Street Bridge, San Diego

This bridge is a landmark here. It spans the 163 Freeway right in the middle of Balboa Park. We drive under it every time we go to the park (unless we take an unusual route.) We are driving north, away from the park in these photos. My son Ian shot these for me today -

The San Diego Zoo is on the right side (as is Balboa Park) - There are places in the zoo where you can watch the cars driving past on the 163.

You can see the glare from the windshield.
