This past weekend, we took a quick overnight trip to San Diego to do a bit of hanging out and exploring. On our way down, we stopped in San Juan Capistrano, a quaint little town that I have always enjoyed because of its beautiful scenery and walkability. We checked out a new (to us) coffee shop, Hidden House, and it was fabulous. It’s nestled in a small area behind the train depot and has several other small shops and cafés nearby to drop into if you’re in the area.
After our coffee stop, we continued on our way down to San Diego. We decided to stay in La Jolla overnight. After dropping our stuff, we chose to spend the last couple of hours of daylight at La Jolla Cove, another favorite place of mine in SoCal. Besides the stunning views and sunsets, there’s always loads of people milling around the shore, which means that people watching is at its best.
The seals were out and about, playing with their pups and posing for the sightseers and tourists with cameras. It was fun to see that they had moved further down the shore from when we were there in March during pupping season. At that time, they were much less active, waiting for their sweet pups to be born and resting on the beach. Here are some photos from last weekend, albeit a cloudy afternoon.
