A Ride By the Pacific Ocean in La Jolla

A beautiful day warrants a ride by the beach in La Jolla. The location of these photos are taken at Glider port near the famous Salk Institute. The views are fantastic and on a clear day you can see Catalina Island off the coast of Los Angeles and if you’re lucky you can catch glimpses of dolphins. Near the bottom of this vantage point is a rather fascinating building. The privately owned building was designed and built by Dale Naegle for Sam Bell (of Bell Potato Chips) in 1965. The funicular you see behind the building running up the cliff takes you up to a private residence that was again owned by Sam Bell. A great day for a ride.
