We love lighthouses so when we were in San Diego we wanted to visit Cabrillo National Monument to see both the Old Point Loma Lighthouse, built in 1854 and the New Point Loma Lighthouse (pictured), put into service in 1893.

Although it occupied a relatively high point, during intense fogs the old one was sometimes difficult to see.  The new lighthouse is at the southernmost part of Point Loma. I took this picture as we were returning to San Diego from a whale-watching excursion. It’s right where the Pacific meets San Diego Bay.

Do you have favorite lighthouses?
