This baby seal pup pulled at our heart strings.  We kept our distance but we loved observing the sea lions and seals. Visitors can see and hear seals and sea lions at many beaches in La Jolla.  This little pup was so adorable!

Pelicans are everywhere. We saw pelicans flying above and perched on cliffs our entire trip.  Once again, we gave them their space, but they are really majestic. It was awesome to see them in their natural habitat.


You want to meet this squirrel and his buddies.  Guys…. people need to stop feeding squirrels in La Jolla.  These little guys kept coming right up to us thinking that we were going to feed them.

Palm trees for days!  Look at these gorgeous trees against that blue sky!

This sea wall was built in the 1930s.  It is a rough walkway, but the views are amazing. The seawall was originally made to create a gentle beach for children, but those famous seals and sea lions made it their home instead.  A walk on the sea wall is a must! For those that have asked, unfortunately the sea wall is not accessible at the time of this article.

La Jolla is also home to beautiful tide pools! Please keep your distance from those that are inhabited by seals and sea lions, but many are available to explore!
