Yesterday was a full day with my friend Beth. We met at 10am and we made our way to Point Loma, just about 5 miles from her place. I had no idea what to expect, all I knew is that I was going to get to enjoy the ocean.
We arrived at Point Loma where we made our first stop at the harbor
And watched Navy ships
Cruise from the harbor out to sea
We were the audience and enjoyed lots of commotion in the sky and observed lots of touch and go at the base across the way.
And watched sailors pass by
Again ~ zoomed in
Another Navy ship heading out
I think this was the refuel ship – zoomed in
After a nice long visit at the harbor, we made our way up to the lighthouse.
Point Loma Light House (1855 – 1891) – The lighthouse stands over 400 feet above sea level. In January 2004 the National Park Service completed restoration of the grounds of Point Loma.
After spending time at the lighthouse we then made our way downward to the other side to enjoy views of the cliffs along the sea.
The path we trod
A sign I’m here
I stand amazed
And we climbed along the coast
It was worth the effort
We timed the coast side for low tide, so happy we did. Can you see the water line along the cliffs?
A little closer to show the high tide line better
The sounds of waves crashing and views of birds passing was so relaxing
I wanted to take in each and every step along the way. What a peaceful day.
Ever changing landscape along the coast
The path down
Looking back from whence we came
What a treasure at the end of the stairs. It felt crazy standing where waves were crashing at high tide. So happy Beth thought to find out when it was going to be low tide.
This is the spot where we decided to park it for a while. We stopped to just take it all in.
From the same area
I’m still here but not for long as we needed to head back to the condo to get ready for dinner.
So we picked up late afternoon
And went back to Beth’s
View from her balcony just before we all left for dinner
Back over to Fred’s in Old Town for dinner. We’re finally enjoying great Mexican food again!
Love the ambiance there – Rolling out homemade tortillas
Cooking them on the grill
Cheers to great friendships, amazing ambiance and delightful dining outside. Shot taken as we were leaving.
Love our friendship and these days spent together. I still feel like I’m back in yesterday, thanks my friend.
