The architecturally interesting Salk Institute in La Jolla, California, sits on a stunning property with views over the ocean cliffs.

(Note: Salk is buttoned up these days due to their COVID- 19 research. They are working on vaccine development, viral imaging and immunity studies. Guards are patrolling and visitors are not allowed. Thank you Salk for what you do).

Next to Salk is the Torrey Pines Glider Port.

A couple steps and you are off the cliff,


with the birds,

helicopters and planes,

over the ocean,

far below.

Sailing off into the sky,

seems so freeing, except for the cliffs and rocks below!

Cheers to you from my life on the ground~

  1. Thank you for sharing the information about what they are doing at Salk for our health. A wonderful building too. Thel paragliding images are fantastic.Maybe sometimes i will try to do, by myself. Best wishes, and stay save,Cindy! Michael


  2. As a huge fan of modern architecture, which also makes great subjects for photography, I was very interested in that photo.
    Is that you in the photos soaring though the skies with wild abandon?! Beautiful and inspiring photos 😃

  3. The architecture is interesting indeed. It’s a great idea for a condo, protruding balconies to give more units a better view, just like the Salk Institute has with the ocean cliffs. Thanks for the photos Cindy which are stunning, as usual! 🙂
