A Day At La Jolla Cove! Views, Whales & Seals!

The majestic small community of La Jolla is surrounded by carved cliffs and stunning coastlines. This is the perfect area to see whales as they migrate through these ocean waters. Occasionally, the local news will report sightings of various whales gracing the coastal regions in Southern California.

Whales have been known to roam in the southern Pacific certain times of the year. I am always excited knowing there are whales in the nearby area, so I grab my camera and head out the door for a little adventure. I make my way down the freeway over to La Jolla Cove.


La Jolla, California is a quintessential smaller coastal community located in San Diego County. It might be one of the most beautiful beach towns I’ve ever seen. DSC_0043_WEB

I have always enjoyed perusing this lovely community with all of its beautiful coast as well as art galleries and eateries. Today, however, I was in search of whales and surfers, since it was officially California Surfer Day on the day of my visit.

As I stroll along the coastal walkways, I am always full of gratitude and happiness. I have such appreciation for the ocean and its powerful waves  and stunning beauty. At times, I find myself glancing out to sea for hours because the blue green waters are so mesmorizing.DSC_0076COVE 2 WEB

It was getting late, and at this time there were still no whales or surfers in sight. The waves are a little rough today, so I assume there will be no surfing today. I did however, have a great time capturing all the beauty and wildlife. There is an abundance of seagulls, pelicans, and seals soaking up the sun everywhere you look.DSC_0092 _ WEB

Take a preview of what my day at the office consisted of below.  Enjoy!

Did you know that La Jolla Cove is one of the most photographed beaches in Southern California?

If you look close, the small rock island is covered with seals and birds lounging as they lounge and soak up the sun.


Sealife is an abundance here at La Jolla Cove and La Jolla Shores area.

If you are visiting the San Diego area, you might consider adding La Jolla Cove to your itinerary, it will certainly not disappoint. This was my office for the day.
