Today's pic of the day is the reflecting pool in Balboa Park. This was my first visit there since it was heavily damaged on 8/12/2012. Young adults spread the word through social media that they were staging a giant water gun fight there on the night of 8/12. It got out of hand. You can learn more about the vandalism and the damage that was caused here: www.10news.com/news/balboa-park-lily-pond-vandalized-in-w...

 

Thankfully the beauty is being restored. Thank you to the City of San Diego, the donors and the volunteers who worked so hard to restore this icon of San Diego. Shame on the young adults who vandalized it!
