San Diego Day 5

Calvin and Autumn love to sit outside on the veranda at nights watching the pool below. Last night I snapped a couple of pictures of them.

Hanging out before bedtime:

(she lodges herself in between the bed and the back of the couch. Calvin calls her a puppet. She likes it for a minute, and then freaks out when she can't get out.)

The views from our two windows. I'll miss them:
The morning out at the pool:

Calvin is so proud that he can stand by himself in the 3ft water:

After we played in the pool and packed up the hotel room, we headed out to Point Loma. We were sad that we hadn't checked it out sooner because it's by far the coolest thing we've done so far in San Diego. I'm glad we at least found it on our last day.

Point Loma National Cemetery:
It looks a lot like Arlington National Cemetery, but it sits on both sides of the road, with the ocean behind it as far as you can see. It is an incredible sight, and not a bad last resting place if you ask me.

Tidal Pools:

Point Loma Lighthouse:

The lighthouse wasn't in operation as long as most because it was often too foggy for boats to see the light. It was really neat though. They had it set up as the family who had last lived there, and showed the solitary life that they lived as well as the rigorous schedule a lighthouse keeper must stick to in order to ensure that his job is done properly. Also, the house was incredibly muggy and hot.

Cabrillo National Monument:
Marks the first time that a European expedition landed on the west coast.

The whole area was breathtaking. I wish we'd had more time to spend there, and I can't wait to go back.

After spending some time playing in the tidal pools, we raced to the airport and made it just in time for our flight. It was a great trip. We had a lot of fun together, and I'm glad I was finally able to experience some of San Diego. Soon we'll start planning our next adventure, but for now, it's good to be home.

Point Loma looks like a place that I would want to visit some day. I love the sail boats and the rocky beach.
What a fun trip for you guys!
