More to see from our quick trip to SoCal. It’s a chilly 35 degrees as I write. Making these photos a welcome respite. I’ve struggled for two days, attempting to share a coastal video with you. How do you do that? Ha ha. I’ve watched YouTube tutorials, uploaded a WordPress plugin, tried to save it as a GIF. And nothing worked. Ugh. More learning ahead!
I spent time researching, to find out what this huge round cement structure is. My first guess was that it had to do with the military and war efforts. Well, that would be the historic version. It might just be some sort of drainage outlet, or something less refined. I did find good articles on the history of the military in and around San Diego. And there were many bunkers built in La Jolla. I just did not find evidence of this do-hickie.
Years ago, I worked in La Jolla for a short time. At the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. I often would walk to the park at lunch. Awesome fringe benefit!
This trip I wasn’t able to walk to the end of the wall at the Children’s Pool. It was wet from the tide. A bummer, but water and an o2 machine, UH-UH. Fun to watch people reacting when they were surprised by a large wave though. I borrowed these images from Google, to share the experience with you. Surprised that they actually show this on the street view!
The Sea Lions are a natural attraction in La Jolla. This short video is more about them than the cove. The second video is longer, and shows seals sunning at the pool. Enjoy!
