Have you ever been to La Jolla, California? It is a beautiful beach community in Southern
California near San Diego. I love visiting this town not just because of the numerous art
galleries, shops and restaurants but more because of the exquisite natural surroundings.
La Jolla is seven miles of curving coastline and it is surrounded on three sides by ocean,
bluffs and beaches. The Torrey Pines bluffs, the sandy beaches and the rugged rocky
beaches make this area very special.
I arrived late in the afternoon when the fog and mist were beginning to roll in so I didn't
have much time for taking pictures.
The area is also home of the Torrey Pines State Reserve so wildlife abounds. The
Pelicans were gathering on the rocks and salt washed bluffs while the seals were
making their way in along the rugged coastline.
The Pelicans were flying in from a long day of hunting for food. They have an expandable
pouch in their lower bill for scooping up fish...
The seals are hard to see because their color blends so well with the rocks...
Here you can see some seals swimming toward the beach and rocks and barking
at their pals who have already made it to shore. I think they are telling them to move
over and make room for them. Seals have four flippers...
This rugged coastline has many coves and sea level caves...
The fog was really starting to roll in and I had a long drive ahead of me so it was time
for me to leave. It seems this Pelican had the same idea...
I also want to show you what I won from a giveaway at Privet and Holly. Suzanne had
these beautiful note cards made from photos she took. I absolutely adore them!
Suzanne is so very lovely and talented and has an incredible gift with words. I know
you all love her blog as much as I do. And as an extra surprise she included this
delicate and lovely bracelet in this sweet pouch.
It all came wrapped in lavender and lace. Thank you, Suzanne. This is absolutely
wonderful and perfect. Many thanks!
