California Road Trip: La Jolla Cove


After seeing all those gorgeous ocean views on our Old Town Trolley Tour, I knew I wanted to spend more time by the water. With its beautiful sandstone cliffs and adorable sea lions, La Jolla Cove was the perfect place to relax.


There were sea lions everywhere. I was surprised to see how close they got to us. One of them was a huge show-off, flapping his flippers and showing us his belly.


A beautiful park, filled with many interesting trees shaped by the wind, surrounded the area. There is a sidewalk along the cliff for nice views of the ocean. I loved sitting on a park bench and looking out on the ocean. Honestly, I would have been happy to sit there all day.

 Catch up on our California Road Trip:

  8. The sky and the water are the same color and I don't really understand that and I'm completely jealous because I want to jump into that water.

  15. You've captured La Jolla beautifully! I was there in January (my first time on the West Coast) and loved it. The water was quite cold and yes, there were tons of sea lions!
