Old Point Loma Lighthouse

Old Point Loma Lighthouse by skip.kuebel
San Diego's Old Point Loma Lighthouse overlooks the San Diego Harbor and Airport. I thought it was interesting to view this whale sculpture with the lighthouse in the background. Lots of nice flowers, this was shot in the Spring. The light had only a short life because the seemingly good location concealed a serious flaw: fog and low clouds often obscured the beam. On March 23, 1891, the keeper extinguished the lamp for the last time. Boarding up the lighthouse, he moved his family and belongings into a new light station at the bottom of the hill. Today you can see the "New" Point Loma Lighthouse from the Whale Overlook, 100 yards south of the Old Point Loma Lighthouse. See more on Flickr. http://www.flickr.com/photos/97777205@N03/9273155512/in/photostream/#
