A couple years ago, I wrote a post about this statue that is on the peak of Cabrillo Monument National Park. The day was clear at the park and not too many people around ( thus the nice unobstructed photo) but you can see off in the distance the haze was pretty thick. When I had first read about this statues history, I thought it so fascinating that I wrote an abbreviated version of the story. As I thought about it, I went back and read my post and there (29 comments)
While visiting the Cabrillo National Monument yesterday, This lofty bird entertained many on lookers as it swooped along the coastline. A stunning example of the species, this bird and its red tail, which is actually a pale shade of reddish brown, adds yet another Raptor to the collection, The Redtail Hawk.
The day provided some stunning views. The islands off the coast where shrouded in with a foggy mist that was reminescent of the Fuji islands. Bluish purple surrounded with the white fog with only the tips showing through.
The San Diego Lighthouse is Located at the extreme southwest end of the Point Loma penninsula just past the Cabrillo National Monument and National Cemetary. This point of land used to be called Pelican Point prior to the erection of the lighthouse. The new Lighthouse along with the old Point Loma Lighthouse which is now a historical monument has quite a history and an interesting story of how and why the new Point Loma Lighthouse came to be. These is web site link here that tells some of that story about these two important and (24 comments)
One of the many beautiful sights in San Diego are it's many harbors. This is one of the premier fishing harbors where some of the deep sea fishing tours originate. With views to the downtown, not a bad place to hang out.
I ventured into one of the wonderful fishing supply stores, Fisherman's Landing on the boardwalk and I was totally amazed with the place. I never saw so much in the way of lures and fishing tackle, rods and reels, clothing, you name it, they had it. As I looked in (26 comments)
point loma: San Diego to Get a New National Cemetery While the Original Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery Gets a Makeover - 09/14/10 11:30 PM
San Diego's New National Cemetery is now under construction and the original Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery is getting a makeover. Veteran Military casket burials at the Rosecrans National Cemetery in Point Loma have not taken place in 44 years with the exception of those killed in action in Iraq and Afghanistan. There have been family members laid to rest with honored loved ones that already have a plot. There have been thousands of cremation burials but Rosecrans simply ran out of space for casket burials.There is a site that I will link here that has the rules and guidelines for who qualifies (20 comments)

point loma: The Big Guns of San Diego During WWII | History of San Diego - 06/06/10 10:23 AM
The Big Guns of San Diego During WWII - I was watching a Ken Kramer's show "About San Diego" on KPBS and one of the features was about the 19th Coast Artillery at Point Loma Rosecrans and the part they played during WWII. He went on to talk about the remnants that still remain along the cliff side near Cabrillo National Monument and the Lighthouse.
I had been to Cabrillo to take photos of the lighthouse and I noticed when I went down on the back side of the lighthouse to get a photo looking up, I came across what (37 comments)

If it Walks Like a Duck and Quacks Like A Duck.....Is It Fair to Say It Must Be a Duck ?
Well I didn't exactly see this one walking and come to think of it, it wasn't even quacking. But I think it's a Duck anyway. I came upon him while showing property in Point Loma and visiting Harbor Island last weekend. He sure was happy when I threw him food. It was a bit hard to eat and take photos so I opted for the later and threw him my last 2 Club Crackers that I was (30 comments)
point loma: If I were Rich and Famous , I'd.......... - 04/05/10 11:12 PM
If I were Rich and Famous , I'd..........take a cruise around the world in my own home on the seas. I expect that the owner of this ship is doing just that. I shot this photo this past weekend after showing property and if this isn't one of the largest world class yachts in the world, it certainly is the biggest one I have ever seen. San Diego is a destination for travelers the world over. It is abundant in harbors to satisfy any need. It is a wonderful place to visit but an even better place to live year around. (54 comments)

point loma: Note to Home Buyers: Begin with the End Picture In Mind - 03/03/09 12:25 PM
I think all too often, Buyers and Sellers are most often disappointed when they have no clear end picture in mind. What I mean by this is that unless you know what you want and have considered your options carefully and realistically , how do know that what you are seeking is going to lead to the correct or desired conclusion.I have had buyers tell me that they would like a 3 bedroom home with 2 car garage, it has to have at least 2 full baths and big yard. And when I ask where in San Diego they would like (24 comments)
