What a wonderful article, Maureen! I lived in la Jolla from 1981-'84, and have visited three times since then, most recently two years ago this week.

Ocean Fresh in Bird Rock! Wasn't that the restaurant whose young owner died from a brain tumor? If so, that was the first place my first wife and I ate at in La Jolla, when we were looking for a place to live in San Diego. It was a Saturday night--March 28, 1981 to be precise--and we didn't see La Jolla's immense beauty till the following morning, when we drove on La Jolla Blvd. till its northern end. Seeing downtown La Jolla was love at first sight!

I loved your reviews in the Union, by the way, as I'm assuming you were there by 1981. Of course, I subscribed to the Light as well, so maybe I was reading you there.
