Old Point Loma Lighthouse

Prior to spending the afternoon in Balboa Park, my parents and I drove out to Point Loma to see the old lighthouse in the Cabrillo National Monument. The spot is beautiful in a barren way. I cannot imagine living out there along 150 years ago with just the wind and the brush to keep you company. The view from lighthouse is impressive though. You can see the bay and the ocean, and the spot is supposed to be good for whale watching, although I didn't see any whales. My favorite thing was not the view or the lighthouse but the red flowers that almost looked as if they were burning up.
