Photos for Skywatch Friday

We took a drive down south along the coast to visit the seals and sea lions in San Diego, California at La Jolla Cove. Before descending the stairs to get close ups of the many seals basking in the sunshine, I wanted to share the overall view of the beach and sea wall.

Here's a nice wave for you as we look out from La Jolla Cove.  It was a wonderful outing to celebrate the first few days of January. We're having pleasant temps and blue skies here at sea lion island, while some of you are experiencing snow. How is it where you are?
