First stop, we needed a treat and popped in a place for gelato, Italian ice cream. The kids had never had it. I, on the other hand, had it nearly every day on our honeymoon in Italy. Just ask Paul:)
We walked down these steps to the beach area.
There were lots of people around but this wasn't a beach where you would swim. As a matter of fact I believe there were No Swimming signs posted.
La Jolla is a beautiful beach community but it's mostly residential. There are some hotels but it's mostly a typcial California coastal town, well a ritzy one that is!
