Wandering Around Point Loma

The storms finally cleared up on Saturday, so after being stuck inside all week I just had to get out for bit. First stop was Point Loma Seafoods for a crab sandwich (forgot to get a picture). Looks like most of the sportfishing fleet is in port.

After lunch I drove out to the Cabrillo National Monument at the end of Point Loma. It was a bit hazy, but still a nice view of the city. Watched several Navy jets landing at NAS North Island.

Also watched an assortment of aircraft taking off.

Here's the old lighthouse.

While I was checking out the lighthouse I saw a Coast Guard helicopter heading out of the Bay at a fairly low altitude. Once he got around the Point and over by the tidepools he dropped down even closer to the surface, obviously looking for something in the surf. He left after a bit, must have been a false alarm. Not a real clear shot, as it was hazy, lots of spray from the waves, and this was shot almost directly into the sun.
