La Jolla is a small coastal village with left-leaningÂ sensitivities just up the road from San Diego. It’s craggy coastline alternates caves, bluffs, and small stretches of sandy beach which are favored by the local populations of both sealsÂ and people. It’s one of theÂ prettiestÂ parts of southern California, with anÂ off-the-beaten-track veneer and laid-backÂ attitude to match.Â You get the sense that people once came to La Jolla and, smitten, never left. (Today, however, they’d have to be able to afford its premium oceanfront prices.) Speaking of premium prices, Mitt Romney has a house here – John McCain, too – so the town’s about to descend into notoriety to some degree. But don’t let their potential presence fool you: La Jolla is a true blue as it’s endless Pacific views.
