    Ellen Scripps Cove Park. A tiny curve in La Jolla's rugged cliff-view coastline that draws snorkelers and swimmers to its (relatively) warmer waters (in the high 60s F/20s C during summer months). Sandy beach inlet and protected sea life in this underwater preserve make it a family favorite. On Coast Boulevard and Girard Avenue in La Jolla.

    Windssea Beach

    This beach is almost as secnic as La Jolla Coves but is a favorite spot for locals and surfers alike.

    It's just due south of La Jolla Coves. This picture shows the Beach Shack that is thacthed during the summer and manned by San Diego Lifeguards.

    Located along the La Jolla Cove walkway is a plaque and it reads:

    This plaque in Commemoration of:
    Conrad F. Limbaugh and Harold F. Riley
    for their efforts toward the creation of
    The San Diego - La Jolla Underwater Park
    Presented by
    The San Diego Council of Diving Clubs
    Inc.
    1972
    South Boundary.

    What is interesting, there is a underwater park. La Jolla Underwater Park is a marine life preservation and aquatic recreation zone. There are two artificial reefs, two underwater canyons, and a kelp forest prime for snorkelers, and scuba divers. Certain areas are destinated for kayakers abd swimmers. Yet there is a no boat area, so make sure to check the map.

    Off of La Jolla between Ellen Browning Scripps Park
    and La Jolla Shores/Cove.

    This is one of the smaller caves along the beach. A lady had her cooler and kids toys inside of it but did not mind me taking a picture. There are lots of these caves. The sand and the waves seem to sandblast' the rocks smooth and make the caves. 'Sunny Jim' cave is bigger. To get to it go down Prospect street to the 1300 block. That one costs $2 to enter and you go down some steps from a shop at the street level.

    Hike to the cliff and enjoy the view

    View of and from preserve

    Torrey Pines State Park is just stunning. Only $8 per car to get in, this state preserve is located north of La Jolla on the Pacific Coast Highway.

    Before the preserve, you can stop at the Torrey Pines Gliderport.

    La Jolla coast

    If you have the right beach wear and foot wear you might enjoy getting into this coastline for a hike to climb up or go under... into the caves. There are some fascinating formations here.

    One of those nice harbor seals swam over to the sea wall. Maybe the seal thought I looked funny and wanted a better look.
