After my walk around the Zoo on Sunday I drove out to the Cabrillo National Monument at the end of Point Loma, which is also the site of the old Point Loma Lighthouse. My main reason for going was to try for some shots of the Star of India and the other sailing ships from the Maritime Museum which were out sailing this past weekend. By the time I got there the Star of India had finished her sail and was being towed back into port. Some of the sails were up, but it really wan't all that impressive. The HMS Surprise was out, with most sails up, but running on it's engine as well. It looked kind of funny at one point, with the mainsails blowing backwards as the ship moved forward. You can see a few images of the sailing ships by clicking on the link at the end of this post.
It turned out to be a beautiful evening, so I hung around and took some shots of the lighthouse as the sun went down.
Another beautiful evening in San Diego.
