Instead of our original plan, we headed down the coast towards Point Loma. My mom had some caches to find and as well as a few points of interest she had researched. Point Loma is a peninsula that is covered in the Fort Rosecrans National Cemetary. On the tip of the peninsula the Old Point Loma Lighthouse is located. We arrived there before it was open, not realizing that it was only 8:30 and most monuments like that do not open until at least 9. (Come on, we were still on Arizona time. This messed us up a few times over the trip.)
Beautiful old Fresnel Lens.
After the Lighthouse we stopped by the cemetery on our way of off the peninsula. I wish it had not been raining so hard, the cemetery was beautiful and I would have liked to walk around under the huge trees and see the USS Bennington Monument.
Gwennie in the rebozo, under my jacket (not wearing shoes.) This is how I ate lunch.It was still early afternoon, so we tried for a little more geocaching, but the cloud cover made the GPS not work very well. We decided to go back to the hotel and dry off. Poor Gwennie was frozen through.
For dinner we ate at Ricky’s because we had driven by the sign touting “World Famous Apple Pancakes.” The service was awful, Gwennie was a brat, but the apple pancake? Oh man was it good. It was a soufflé with apple on top (or on the bottom while cooking.) Also, they had really good hash browns, fresh and just nice.
