A few days ago us girls (my daughter-in-law, granddaughter and I) went to Seaport Village in San Diego to walk around and have some lunch. They were having a display of balls - GIANT balls. I'm not sure what the official title of the show was but let's call it Big Balls with a Green Theme. Each taller-than-a-person ball was a piece of art with an ecological or environmental message. Each had a small plaque so you could read about it although with a two year old, we didn't get a chance to read them.

I think this one was about different types of forests.

A reminder to grow organic.

This looks like a baseball but the autographs are reminders of ways to reduce energy use.

This one reminded me of a Mad Maxx satellite.

These are a regular site in front of a kite shop but still fun and colorful. I took photos of more balls but I don't have time to upload them tonight. Gotta get some sleep so I can get on the road for a long drive back to northern California tomorrow. Sigh. So consider this Part One. Stay tuned...

The balls are called, "Cool Globes- Hot Ideas for a Cooler Planet". I blogged about them, you should check it out :) Seaport really enjoys having them here!
