La Jolla – A relaxing start, dispelling myths and meeting new friends

07 Jun


One of the first stops on the journey was a quaint and beautiful little town in San Diego called La Jolla (pronounced La Hoya) yes I pronounced it like it was a little Jolly! – Apologies for all those that I offended! Although I did manage to get my own back when I was asked to throw another shrimp on the BBQ….. Much to my friends dismay I had to dispel the myth that Aussies call prawns “shrimps”….. Mr Paul Hogan was scripted purely for the American market I am afraid….. anyway I digress.

For those of you who love a quaint little town ,with an abundance of wild life then this is a must stop for you, where you are guaranteed to bump in to the odd seal lapping up the afternoon sun on the beach or peruse around The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego.

I am not really a travel writer, but love to take pictures so forgive me if I just stop with the words and give you the pictures!

Introducing my new friend Sammy!



Obviously Sammy had the right idea and found a beach away from the crowds….









Well hopefully you are nice and relaxed…. on with the colourful adventure…

    Thanks for igniting some wonderful memories about our trip there last fall. There’s a wonderful book shop in town; the owner is a master at suggesting something you’ll love!

    Fantastic photos, BCD – love them. Especially the crowded beach, where those sun lovin’ seals look like big stones. Or like an unfortunate plague has got them (sorry, but it’s true!) πŸ™‚

    Beautiful pictures. In spite of being correct by my friends several times.. I keep forgetting and pronounce just like you did the first time.
