San Diego Seaport Village & La Jolla

After a hectic couple of months, we now have a small opportunity to continue with the account of our raod trip to the States over the Christmas and new year period.  After Scottsdale, we drove to San Diego.  ´╗┐Just wanting to be outside and make the most the sunshine, we headed to one of our very favourite areas of San Diego – The Seaport Village.

A few shots of downtown!  This first one is a panorama, which is best viewed by clicking on it.
This was looking across at all the shops and restaurants at the Village.

As we took a moment to take in the view, we saw two Pelicans come in to land!

  You couldn’t have a port without a sailor and his “girl”.

 

 This one shows the scale of the statue!

 We then headed down the road to La Jolla (pronounced La Hoya). 
It isn’t that we particularly miss open waters on a day to day basis, but it is nice to get a little “fix” of shorelines and lapping waters from time to time!
 We walked down onto the beach, were there were loads of harbour seals
 They seemed happy enough basking in the sunshine.
  
 

  Something seemed to tickle this one!!

 
 
 
 
 
It was a lovely and relaxing day and so nice to see green grass, blue skies and water!
