We arrived at low tide to see the sea life. Unfortunately a virus has wiped out a lot of the sea stars. I slipped on the rocks and fell in a tidal pool. Fortunately, I gave my camera to my son-in-law just before I fell....More

My friend told me that no visit to San Diego is complete without seeing Point Loma, the Cabrillo National Monument and Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery. He was right. The views are spectacular. A plaque lists the Portuguese name "Joao Rodrigues Cabrilho" that for some reason...More
