Seaport Village

Typical of a tourist area, the Seaport Village in San Diego attracts sidewalk artists seeking a donation for demonstrating their talent. One can find for sale or a donation hats, roses, and origami birds made from palms. Tie-dyed t-shirts are also available. Musicians take a seat in the path of heavy traffic hoping their offering is worth folding money. We thought two of the people demonstrated unique talent. The portrait artist sketched on his pad a remarkable likeness of a young girl. The other was a man who picked up rocks from the rip-rap that had been placed to protect the shoreline from erosion. The rocks were stacked and balanced creating unique formations. My husband questioned how long would the rocks remain as they were placed. The man said until the wind blows. We watched him replace one of the stacks of rocks after it had fallen. That was very interesting.
