We thought we were only stopping here for a short look and then moving on. 5 hours later, we did indeed move on. The place was just too darn beautiful. I am splitting this stop into three components. This one is the scenery.
La Jolla (La Hoya) Cove is a small picturesque cove and beach surrounded by cliffs in La Jolla, San Diego, California. It is a protected marine area with a rich underwater marine life. (SOURCE:Wikipedia)
There is free public parking on street, but it is limited and we can only imagine what it must be like on a busy summer weekend. Arriving in mid afternoon on a mid spring weekday, we had no parking problem and in fact, our spot on the hill leading down to the cove gave us a perfect view without even leaving the car, but that would never do.
