4th of July in La Jolla, CA          The 4th of July is my favorite holiday of the year, tied with Thanksgiving.  A holiday to me means relaxing and spending time with loved ones.  It also means great food, good drinks, and great company.  This year, I had all of the above.           My day started out with a great surprise - my younger brother flew into town from New Jersey earlier than expected.  I hadn't seen him since Christmas so it was great to be surprised by his arrival first thing in the morning.  Our afternoon was spent on Huntington Beach, fighting waves, baking in the sun (I'm now 50 shades of red), and sharing plenty of laughs - it was crowded, but was a great time nonetheless.  The sand was hot, the skies were blue, the water warm, and the cooler full - I couldn't have ask...

Hey! Who Put That Pig Farm There?   It’s all about location…so they say.   But sometimes the location comes with, well, what some folks feel are annoyances that shouldn't be there.   We lived in Bolton MA a number of years ago, a fairly affluent and somewhat rural community along the 495 corridor about 30 miles west of Boston. Definitely a “bedroom community” as the term goes. [photo courtesy of wattpublishing on Flickr].   Some of the more rural areas were being developed with expensive, custom-built homes on large lots as the town was growing during the DotCom craze of the mid to late 1990s and there was quite some brouhaha about a pig farm in one of these upscale neighborhoods.   Seems that on warm, and windy, days the owners of these expensive custom-built homes no longer had to gue...

A "Nakation" is a naked vacation and is considered one of the latest trends to help Americans break out of the nation's economic slump and national malaise.  Not sure how "getting naked" and romping on the beach will help my finances, but one of the TripAdvisor's top ten nude beaches in the nation is Black's Beach in San Diego County. La Jolla  is home to the two mile Black's Beach and portions of the beach are governed under the city and other parts are in a state park zone where nudity was legal until 2009. Citations for nudity are a possibility, but the California State Parks says they have no plans to shut down the clothing optional status at Black's Beach. It is considered one of the largest nude beaches in the United States and is popular with nudists from all over the world.  The...

There is no better way to get to know your neighborhood than driving without a map and getting lost. When I arrived in La Jolla, California in 1976, I was captivated by the beauty of the Ocean that seem to be all around you  La Jolla is surrounded by hills with great ocean views. Nevertheless, there are wonderful narrow curvy roads that lead you to the top of those hills and end in cul-de-sacs with outstanding ocean views. As a Realtor, I have had the opportunity to view many of these homes that do not have the ocean views but do have the La Jolla Old Charm. Spanish and Contemporary homes going up Lookout Drive and Hillside. I have explored all those roads. Driving around the many La Jolla Beaches there are small streets West of La Jolla Blvd. and West of La Jolla Shores Drive with many...
