We are planning a half a day in La Jolla Cove sometime around July 19. We have 2 chldren 9 and 2 and grandparents with us.
What is he best planning in terms of not being in the fog, minimizing the crowds and observing the wild life?
1. breakfast at the Brockton Villa Restaurant and then beach and exploring the coves
2. beach and exploring the coves and then lunch at Brockton Villa
3. lunch at Brockton Villa and then beach and exploring the coves
Also, I picked Brockton Villa because of its proximity to the cove. Is there anything as (or almost as) close that is good?
And, finally, I understand the free parking is tough there. Is there a paid parking close if we don't find a spot?
