Please enjoy some photographs!

Yesterday I took a long walk through La Jolla. Before leaving home, I checked the tide chart. My intention was to photograph the tide pools at beautiful Bird Rock. I’ve read you can actually walk out to this spectacular rock in the ocean at low tide. Unfortunately, as it turned out, yesterday the tide wasn’t low enough!

But I did get my fill of natural beauty. Will you please join me as I walk from La Jolla Boulevard a couple blocks down Bird Rock Avenue, and then down to the water?

We carefully head a bit south, too. Watch your step! The tide is fairly low and we get close to the splashing water.

  1. Great photos, always nice to have a walk down by the sea, and your day to bird rock provided some amazing views. Like how the sign was made of colored tiled and the bench featured sea shells. Wonderful scenery, looks like a very nice peaceful place.
