On our way back, we decided to stop at a Carlsbad outlet to buy some stuff and to check out the flower garden nearby. You can see the garden from a distance but to get "up close and personal", you have to shell out $7 (senior rate); more, if you are under 62. Nothing is free any more. I will not be surprised if in the years to come, we will be paying for the air we breathe.
Gaslamp area of San Diego - it's beautiful at night when all those lamps are on

A homeless guy sleeping in a nearby park. I ran into many of them while taking an early morning walk along the harbor. The local police try to drive them away from the areas frequented by tourists but they are not always successful. They don't bother anybody, they just want a place to hang out and sleep.
