Point Loma

Before heading back from San Diego, my sister and I decided to make a stop in Point Loma, at the Cabrillo National Monument. While we didn't realize there was a $15 entry fee, since we'd already planned on going, we payed it and went on our way. There was a small gift shop and information center, along with some stunning views overlooking the city - we could even spot the Corondao hotel. There is a historically preserved lighthouse you can walk through, but you can only get access to the very top three days a year.

Down at the bottom there are tide pools, and this part would be best visited in sneakers or some shoe more sensible than a sandal. At least you can drive down and park! I saw some people walking the trek and I can only say that I admire their dedication.

As you can see, the views are quite gorgeous no matter where you are, and while I wasn't too keen on the entry fee, it was a worth while visit.

  1. Such pretty views!!!
    And hopefully all those entry fees go to keeping everything in tip top shape and helping the beautiful land around stay protected

  2. Like you, I probably would have balked at the entry fee - I know parks need maintenance, but the idea of paying to enter a place that is essential open air and part of nature always feels wrong to me. Still, it looks like the $15 was absolutely a worthwhile fee to pay for the stunning views, which look very much like a California version of the views that I saw at Peggy's Cove last summer. There is something about the rocky edge of where the land meets the ocean that is just so beautiful.

  3. Those views are spectacular (although it is too bad you had to pay for it).

  4. So beautiful, love the tide pools!

  5. Oh such a pretty view - well worth the entry fee I think! I love your navy and white outfit with that stunning landscape backdrop too! :)

    Hope that you are having a lovely weekend :) We have a kids birthday party today which will be fun. Noisy, but fun, haha!

But I’m so happy you’re here and looks like you’re enjoying it :)

  11. California is so beautiful! I feel like there's so much to explore you'll never be able to see it all. Love your outfit too!

  12. What gorgeous pictures and a beautiful view!! I love that pretty wrap top on you too.

  13. Such stunning views, the 15.00 USD entrance fee seems a bit high but what would you have done with 15.00 USD? Have lunch? buy a tank top? Some things are priceless - you are looking sharp and chic my dear friend.

  14. It looks so gorgeous out there! I have been dying to go there!
