You need a serious change of pace and a big breath of fresh air. Here’s what I suggest:
It’s a beautiful day and a walk along the water in La Jolla would do you all a lot of good.
Head over to the Santa Fe Station (across Harbor Drive from the Cruise Ship Terminal) and take the Coaster to Old Town and then the #30 MTS bus right into La Jolla.
Walk down to Coast Boulevard and visit the seals at the Children’s Pool and check out the sea lions, flocks of pelicans, and swimmers at The Cove. Then pick up a latte at Goldfish Point Cafe and sit on a bench overlooking the water and try to forget the whole dead-in-the-water ship thing ever happened.
If you’re feeling flush, you can also take a taxi from the B Street Pier to La Jolla, but it will set you back about $35 each way.
La Jolla is San Diego’s favorite seaside community and, in addition to a beautiful coastline, also offers great restaurants (you’ll find most of them on Prospect Street) and really fun shopping options (Girard Avenue).
If you have specific questions, please post them as comments and I’ll respond ASAP. I live in La Jolla and would be happy to suggest other ways that you can take your mind off the troubles you’ve endured.
If you’ll be sticking around for awhile, check out the La Jolla Calendar of Winter Events.
Please accept the sympathy of a fellow traveler – and my offer to help.
