La Jolla, California - 2014
In June of 2014 (15 - 18 June, 2014) I went on a business trip (with some co-workers) to San Diego. We stayed at the Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines while we were there. Arriving on a Sunday, we spent most our time working. When we weren't working we managed to visit a few of the local restaurants (Fidel's Little Mexico - Solana Beach, CA (North of Del Mar); Piatti - La Jolla shores; Sushi on the Rock - La Jolla), the hotel grounds, the golf course (Torrey Pines - no we didn't play while we were there), and the Torrey Pines state natural reserve. Here's a few of the photos I took while I was there.
La Jolla sure was a beautiful place, and there was a lot to do and see. Unfortunately, I was only there for a few days and I spent most of my time working. I would like to go back and take a vacation. After I got home (to Colorado), I went on line to look up home/real-estate prices… Oh my! Talk about an expensive place to live! According to WikiPedia: <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/La_Jolla> La Jolla was the most expensive place to live in America (4 bedroom avg price = $1.8m). Further research showed that San Diego is still (as of June, 2014) one of the 10 most expensive places to live in the U.S. (appx 30% above national average). http://www.city-data.com/zips/92037.html.
Too bad it’s so expensive. I guess I won’t be buying any property anywhere near San Diego or La Jolla, I’ll just have to be content with my brief visit, the possibility of a vacation, and the handful of photos I took. I hope you enjoy the photos as well.
