As promised, more La Jolla:
I never get tired of looking at La Jolla Cove. I’ve taken quite a few photos there, but they’re all so different.
Sea Lavender and ice plant.
There’s usually a wedding or a photo shoot going on, and that day was no exception.
Even the utility covers looked good that day.
If you look closely in the background, you can see a faint outline of the mountains.
Sorry, I got a little carried away with the sea lavender.
I spotted this place while driving away from the cove. (iPhone shot)
I think it’s more than one place, but aren’t the colors beautiful?
The view’s not too bad either.
This was just down the street.
Such a charming doorway.
The Pacific was so blue that day.
Hope your week’s going well so far.
Those colors are amazing. I need to get there some day!
Come visit, Meg!
Wow! So beautiful! Makes me want to get to the beach and relax! 🙂
I’m with you… I never get tired of looking at these photos.
I love the shot with the lifeguard stand. Though I have to wonder if that’s the optimal location for the lifeguard. If someone was in trouble in the surf, it looks like a long way down to save them.
It is indeed, Jackie. The rocks and surf can be pretty rough too. I would not want to guard there.
Thanks, Susan. 🙂
peaceful and nice place 🙂
It really is. 🙂
Ah, so beautiful.
Hope you have some blue skies over there, TBM.
I really get your enthusiasm for sea lavender. Such a photogenic plant.
The colors in these shots really are something.
Thanks, Caroline. I had never seen sea lavender before moving to California.
A “Prose” on Sea Lavender !!!! Are the mountains in the back you are mentioning, Catalina Island, or San Clemente Island? you ever hiked up the trail of Torrey Pines, it is so beautiful there!! I go there once a year and it is always incredible.
There are mountains on three sides of San Diego. A big surprise to me before I moved here. (I thought San Diego was a city with a beach and not much else.) You have to be further north to see Catalina or San Clemente Island.
Yes, I’ve hiked Torrey Pines several times and love that area. I blogged about it here if you’re interested.
