The Lodge at Torrey Pines

I am fairly obsessed with the Arts and Crafts Movement. I find the style to be so warm and logical. And I love the design philosophy of beautiful, practical, well-made things which communicate an understanding and appreciation of Nature. 
Situated on the cliffs above the Pacific Ocean in La Jolla, California, The Lodge at Torrey Pines is, in my opinion, one of the best modern interpretations of the California Craftsman style. Plus, the bar serves a mean gin & tonic.

  1. Love this place, love the restaurant and the grounds and the architecture and well, just everything about it!

  2. I'm ready to check in! Where's my gin and tonic - or even a cup of tea? I need that mega-dose of sunshine most of all, though.

  3. Bar? Gin and tonic? Sunset? Now you're talking!

  7. Snow is an accumulation of packed ice crystals, and the condition of the snow pack determines a variety of qualities, such as bestessays, temperature, and water equivalent. As weather conditions change, the snow pack can change as well, and this affects the characteristics of the snow.
