Fun fact: if you know your feline body language, you’ll notice that the lynx is deferring to the housecat. As far as these two are concerned, the housecat is the higher-ranking cat.
OH MY GOD
California Tower in Balboa Park at sunset, San Diego, USA (by mojo2u).
so this tower opened when the entirety of Balboa park opened in 1915 for the Panama-California Exposition celebrating the opening of the Panama Canal.
In 1935 they held the 20th anniversary and the second Panama-California Exposition. After the second exposition in 1935 they decided to close the tower to visitors.
My entire life, it has been a dream of mine to go up that spiral staircase to the top of the tower.
A group called “Emerging Museum Professionals” is holding an insider event for a small group of people from the various museums at Balboa Park. I luckily get to be part of that group since I work at both the Reuben H Fleet Science Center and the San Diego Youth Symphony, both of which are at Balboa Park.
In a few weeks, on September 26th I get to make the 235-step ascent to the top with that group. I am so freaking stoked.
And coming in 2015 Balboa Park will be officially reopening the California Tower to visitors!
if my husband doesnt tear up when im walking down the aisle im turning the fuck around
my husband definitely will because he’s gonna have to put up with me for the rest of his life and that’s enough to make anybody cry
