Seaport village at night with the Grand Manchester Hyatt of San Diego in the background.
Yesterday’s post was about Pacific Beach’s Pier and today’s post is just a few miles further north, Scripps Pier in La Jolla. This pier unlike the others in San Diego, is not open to the public but is mostly used for research by UCSD; to be more specific its part of the Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics (IGPP).
An image of people taking a stroll on the sands of Pacific Beach. Pacific Beach’s Pier is quite unique, as you can see the first portion of the pier is made of chalets which is part of a hotel. That is the Crystal Pier Hotel, the link will take you to an image of the entrance.
Here’s to the weekend! (This is the logo of Stone Brewing Company in North County San Diego)
The sun has set a very clear path down the ocean on where its going to set from that day and I tried to get it right down the middle of the stairs as if its inviting you chase it down the ocean 🙂 Have a great hump day.
Another picture from The Lost Abbey in Escondido which is a decent sized micro brewery. Apparently San Diego is famous for its micro brewery scene and lately I’ve been touring a lot of them, definitely much better than the big macro breweries! Hope you’re enjoying the weekend.
An image of Casa de Manana’s retirement community with downtown La Jolla in the backdrop. It originally opened as Hotel Casa de Manana in 1923 and its original owner sold it in 1956, shortly after it was turned into a retirement community. The detailed story is available on their website, its a short read.
For this week’s entry I’m going with the Ocean Beach Fishing Pier. I just squatted down for this image and made sure that I was right down the middle to get all my lines parellel 🙂
Yet another week comes to an end and what better way to end it than another sunset from La Jolla shores 🙂 Hope you are enjoying the weekend.
Its Friday so in honor of the weekend here is a diptych of beer kegs at the Stone Brewing Company in Escondido. Enjoy the weekend 🙂
A Picture of Hoangie’s food truck that serves Banh Mi (Vietnamese sandwiches) on the go, they are actually quite highly rated so maybe I should’ve given them a try. I took this picture outside of The Lost Abbey while touring San Diego’s North county microbreweries.
A parked Ferrari at the Stone Brewing Company, this is the the F430 Spyder. The F430 was produced from 2004 to 2009, its the predecessor was the 360 and it was later on replaced by the 458 Italia.
The lifeguard tower over children’s pool at La Jolla Cove around sunset. Considering how this the highest point overlooking the ocean and its on top of a rocky area, this is probably the central tower for La Jolla as the ocean is not very accesible from that point specially in case of an emergency!
A part of the UCSD campus around the La Jolla Scripps Pier, this is most probably used by the research staff & graduate students of the university.
A picture of La Jolla cove from children’s pool beach. Since the sun was still out and it was bright no matter how low I bumped my ISO and how small I set my aperture I couldn’t get the shutter slow enough to smooth out the water. I had to use my variable neutral density filter (which acts like a pair of sunglasses) to get the silky waters effect. In essence, the filter blocks the amount of light the sensor sees and the the shutter will remain open for a longer period to allow for a correct exposure; and this will get you the silky water effect 🙂
