Now, you might think that's a big, long, faraway leap, like going to another planet! But it didn't faze George! With no family left in the area, he made the transition rather easily, choosing to settle down in an affluent, hilly seaside resort community, occupying 7 miles (11 km) of curving coastline along the Pacific Ocean in Southern California, an area known as La Jolla! To top it off (You're not gonna believe this, but it is true) George decided to drive his car all the way from wintry New York to sunny California!

Scripps Institute of Oceanography and the Salk Institute are located in the area.
