A Favorite Scene

This may not be the most beautiful view in La Jolla, but I use it as my cover photo because of the memories attached to it. We lived in San Diego in the 60's and spent wonderful sunny Sundays on this beach with our little kids and friends....picnics and cook outs...and endless hours of being lazy. Some of my best times when living in California.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Exquisite coastline, clean beaches, fabulous cliffs, wildlife, surf.....
  • Cons:On the verge of being overbuilt... everyone wants to be here
  • In a nutshell:Not to be missed if you are in the San Diego area

    Excellent pictures of pelicans! I sure would have gone to visit the caves if I had been there! I feel that the trees are regular olive trees twisted and crooked by the always blowing ocean winds

    Thanks for the La Jolla tips! During my last visit I didn't get to see too much. I guess it's time to return. Joe

    Janet, Hi. I loved your La Jolla page. I love La Jolla. I am in CA until after the first of the year and go down to see my 92 year old stepfather in SD once a month. Hope to persuade my sister to stop in La Jolla for lunch the next time we go.

    An enjoyable page, your comments and photos of pelicans reminded me of the (Ogden Nash??) verse!
