As a photographer and writer for a Southern California beach publication I am blessed with being able to travel the Southern California coast at will and choose what subjects to photograph and which not to. La Jolla Cove and La Jolla Village offer some of the nost amazing coastal views and landscapes in Southern California.

It is no wonder then that Ellen Scripps Park, which sits above La Jolla Cove is “San Diego’s most photographed location in the city”, with amazing architecture in the buildings, huge oversized palm trees, huge areas of green grass, coastal walking trails and of course the beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean and waves crashing on the rocks below. Large numbers of seals live in the area and lay out on the rocks sun bathing while large flocks of pelicans clean themselves and fly out to hunt for fish in the open water.

The amount of wildlife and birds, animals on land is amazing but mix in the thousands of aquatic creatures in the La Jolla Underwater Wildlife Preserve which is part of the La Jolla Cove area and now you can see why scuba divers and snorkelers come by the hundreds daily to swim out on the ocean waters.

La Jolla Cove also is home to Sunny Jim Cave, one of 7 caves you can see while kayaking in the area and the cave is over 100 stairs down if you enter by land.
