OLD POINT LOMA LIGHTHOUSE - Aug 13, 2009

Cabrillo National Monument, where the (pictured) Old Point Loma Lighthouse is located is San Diego's only NPS managed site. It is a Plymouth Rock of sorts, the site marking the first landing of Europeans on the Pacific Coast. Of course, there isn't all that much to see and do here. Yet the site is interesting in its own way. I make it a point to use my multi-agency America is Beautiful pass and take guests visiting me.
 

 


The Bayside Trail offers some of the best views of San Diego's downtown. In the winter months one can try spotting Gray Whales migrating back north. The Rangers too make the trip interesting by narrating Cabrillo's story, with props and such. All in all, it makes for an interesting afternoon in fine San Diego!
