La Jolla Cove, California“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.” – Anatole France

In my mid-twenties, I moved to California. Before heading to the Los Angeles area, I spent a few months in San Diego. Every day, after work, I would drive to La Jolla Cove and walk the path. My eyes would soak in the ocean and dance with delight as I watched the seals. I would snap a few pictures to remind myself of how lucky I was to experience such a wonder.  The wildlife, serenity, and ocean waves crashing against the shore created a little piece of heaven for me. This is where my mind drifted, and I fantasized about the incredible adventure I was about to embark on.

I have been fortunate to wander back to California on numerous occasions. I was mostly recently in San Diego for a friend’s wedding. Of course, I had to stop at one of my favorite places – La Jolla Cove. The Cove is truly one of the most beautiful places in the world.

When I got there, the street had been blocked off. I only had a few hours to enjoy the ocean and wildlife before meeting up with a friend. I was determined to find a way down to the Cove, which I eventually did.

What is La Jolla Cove like? There is a stretch of ocean against little patches of sand and sandstone cliffs. You may spy birds, squirrels, tons of seals, and other wildlife. The ocean waves are powerful as they crash against the rocks. The seals are playful and calm around the masses of people who stop to admire them. Parking along the street can be challenging, but the views are fabulous. This is a great little spot to immerse yourself in nature and wildlife.

If you are ever in San Diego, I hope you add La Jolla Cove to your itinerary. I promise; you will not be disappointed by the Cove’s unmatched beauty. After you have enjoyed California’s majestic views, you can wander off to the cute restaurants and shops in downtown La Jolla.
