Contributing Editor Bill Abrams continues his profiles of inspiring veterans, including 102-year-old La Jollan Maxim John Gurney, a World War II Army vet honored last spring with a plaque at the Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial, and a longtime friend of Prince Albert II of Monaco. Abrams also shares the story of La Jolla-based Lucy Pauseback, DACM, who left the Army but continues to serve on a home "battlefield" by helping oncology patients. So, where does our Travel Editor Elizabeth Hansen, a longtime La Jolla resident, go on vacation? She's just back from a trip to the Oregon coast. Read all about her adventure in "A Road Trip to Remember." If you don't want to travel far from home this August, in "New, Now, Next: Endless Summer Edition," Murphy reveals there's still plenty of time to savor all that San Diego has to offer. In case we need reminding why we're so fortunate to live in our corner of the country! PHOTO BY JODY PINCHIN Letter from the Editor A view from the sky catches La Jolla, our coastal jewel, at golden hour Photography by Vincent Knakal on the cover Andrea Naversen, Editor-at-Large Instagram: @ranchandcoast L a Jolla, the "jewel" of the SoCal coast, is on our radar this month, our annual August take on exciting happenings in this seaside village. And there are quite a lot, it turns out. Managing Editor Deanna Murphy checks out Orli, a luxury hotel in La Jolla that marries history — architect Irving Gill built the property in 1913 — with modern technology including contactless elements like self-check-in and electronic messaging. Co-founders and siblings Maxwell Waitt and Hailey Waitt, who were raised in La Jolla but traveled widely, wanted to create an updated experience for guests that is also "authentically La Jollan," writes Murphy, from Cafe Moto cold brew and Sugar & Scribe pastries to local itineraries and events. La Jolla's "Pink Lady" — the venerable La Valencia Hotel — has plans to bring back the beloved Whaling Bar which was closed in 2013 and merged with Café la Rue, much to the chagrin of locals and visitors. e hotel is collaborating with restaurant group SDCM to update the bar, Murphy reports, blending old and new, by year's end. In nearby Bird Rock, the buzz is all about Paradisaea, voted Best New Restaurant in our recent readers' poll, so Food & Beverage Editor Brandon Hernández just had to have a taste. Read his review, "Bird of Paradise," in this issue. On the design scene, I feature a charming La Jolla remodel by Audrey Graham Kennedy of AGK Design Studio and an ocean view Del Mar redo by Savvy Interiors. I also highlight Hanna and Mark Gleiberman, "La Jolla Visionaries" who are funding a new glaucoma research center at the Shiley Eye Institute in La Jolla headed by acclaimed director Robert Weinreb, MD. ranchandcoast.com 30 AUGUST 2023 RANCH & COAST MAGAZINE
