Blue Monday, My World Tuesday, Watery Wednesday, Outdoor Wednesday / La Jolla = The Jewel

Click on photos to enlarge!
The Sea Wall at La Jolla
La Jolla is pronounced, "La Hoya" and means "The Jewel."
The area is a  beautiful part of the Southern California coastline just north of San Diego.

The bluffs are covered with color!

The coves are a haven for resting seals.

It really is beautiful there! I remember feeling very dumb because I mispronounced the City the first time we were there (so long ago that I still was young enough to feel embarrassed) Now I'd just laugh it off. But of course now I know how to pronounce Spanish-derived words ;>

What a beautiful area, Carolyn. I love how the fence leads us into the scene in the top photo, gorgeous colour in the second, and a great view in the third ! A jewel for sure !

Your photos of these beautiful coast lines remind me of the beaches where you and Jerry took me on the first day of my visit to Ontario.

Flowers on the sand almost. I wonder what they are. Succulents by the looks of it. Such a pretty place, doing its name honour.

It is amazing to see the seals relaxing along the shoreline. And the vibrant colors on the bluff make the scenic beauty of your world come alive.

I first heard of this place on a romance book I was reading a long time ago and it tells of how the beauty of the place lends itself to romance. You proved that with your images.
