Every 2nd and 4th Saturday of every month at 10:00 a.m you can enjoy a private or group docent-led, historical walking tour through La Jolla’s charming historical downtown village. The tour begins at the La Jolla Historical Society’s Wisteria Cottage with 15 stops altogether. Please be advised that this 90 minute, 1.5 mile tour is very brisk and there are some hills. You will discover the rich history, architecture, and culture that is so uniquely “La Jolla”. All of this for only $10.00. Tickets must be purchased in advance at the lajollahistory.org.
After your tour please feel free to stop by and pick up a brochure about our historical bed and breakfast while enjoying a cold refreshing soft drink, coffee or tea in the garden with our compliments, just show your tour ticket stub to our manager/innkeeper on duty. We look forward to having you visit.
Self guided walking tours are also available for only $5 by purchasing a wonderful detailed guide book with map at Warwick’s Book Store in the village on Girard or at the Museum of Art in La Jolla on Prospect. The Museum is worth taking the time to visit for it’s magnificent views, very “now” art exhibits, and unique gift shop. I also highly recommend their wonderfully delicious cafe for a light lunch or just coffee and dessert- perfect way to end your tour ( self guided or otherwise ). Go and Seize the Day!!
My friend made these last week for a party. They are truly addictive, healthy, and great to serve at parties, with cocktails or just as a quick snack.
2 1/3 Cup whole raw almonds
1/3 Cup Splenda baking sugar or regular granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes ( Add more if you want more Heat )
1 Tablespoon of fennel seeds
3 Tablespoons of water
Mix all ingredients in a bowl until almonds are well coated. Spread out flat on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with non-stick spray ( a quick tip is to use non-stick tin foil to speed up cleaning time). Place tray in a pre-heated oven at 325 degrees. Cook for 25 minutes, turning almonds every 5 minutes. When almonds are golden brown on both sides, remove from oven and let cool. Once cool, place in bowl and enjoy!
