I taught chess at Birdrock Elementary in La Jolla yesterda. Class ended at 4:10, and I got all my chess sets put away and got back to the car at 4:30.
Instead of sitting in rush hour traffic for 1½ hours to get home, I decided to go to La Jolla Cove for 1½ hours.
I took 214 pictures—sunset, pelicans, cormorants, seagulls, squirrels, seals and sea lions, tide pools, and the gorgeous views.
Here are five pictures of the tide pools, looking like something from another planet:
And one of my favorite pictures from last night’s sunset at the La Jolla Cove:
La Jolla is a great place to visit at any time but the tide pools and beaches are more accessible during low tides.
You can find tide schedules here: La Jolla tides.
The best place to see the tide pools is at Rocky Point, shown on the map below.
Parking throughout La Jolla, especially during Tourist Season (Memorial Day to Labor Day), is scarce so be prepared to drive around for a while looking for a parking spot or park the first place you see a spot and walk to Scripps Park. A walk through downtown La Jolla is a great experience all on its own!
