Just north of the bay of San Diego is a cove in the coast line called La Jolla Cove. It is where Scripps Oceanographic Institute is and the entire cove is a protected marine sanctuary. It is very rich in aquatic life both above and below the surface with everything from California Sea Lions to Leopard Sharks to huge Giant Sea Bass. Deb and I did about 10 dives in and around La Jolla. It took us about 3 months to get brave enough to do it since the water temp was averaging about 65 degrees! But with 7mil suits, gloves and hoods we were fine. Sorry I don't have any dive pics yet. I am still busy just trying to stay alive down there so I haven't graduated up to being an underwater photographer!

While Blake was here we went to La Jolla and kayked for the day. These are the pics from that day.
