La Jolla impressed me with the seals, birds and the rock formations. But I think Cabrillo beats it with the harsh-hitting water to the sandstone cliffs found on the oceanside of Point Loma.
To say the least, it is downright STUNNING!
The rocks and waves are not the only sights here. People are stooping to find some shore crabs, spongy dead man’s fingers, bat stars, surf grass, sea hares, sea anenomes, etc. I was actually approached by someone who was knowledgeable about sea anemones, her name is Angela. She gladly showed me one of it resting in one of the tidespools. It looks like a plant, but she confirms it to be an animal.
The marine habitat’s survival depends on the topography. and the preservation of the people. Maltreatment of all forms of life are protected by federal law and shout not be disturbed or removed.
Have I used the word ‘breathtaking’ before in my blog? It’s just accurate if this is the first.
If you look closely, the water splashes got higher than the cliff.
If you happen to visit Cabrillo, don’t just get fixated on the monument and the Point Loma lighthouse. The Rocky Intertidal Zone will surely have you stunned.
Buckwheat and other delicates further the color and beauty of the area.
During my visit to San Diego …
I met with Russel Ray. He generously offered to play docent and I gladly accepted it. His blog is everything San Diego. He speaks highly of it esp. San Diego Zoo and Safari. He’s not only highly acquainted to the whereabouts of the city but very understading of it inside and out. If you ever want to take a tour, he’s your go-to guy and have yourself a good company.
My favorite is my first encounter to his blog… Golden Eagle at the San Diego Zoo’s Safari Park. Check out his blog … and the cats!

May you have a commemorative, blessed, gratifying Memorial Day.
Taken at Cabrillo Memorial Drive. I couldn’t help but get emotional with these fallen comrades.
