Point Cabrillo Light Station State Historic Park

The fifth park we visited was the Point Cabrillo Light Station State Historic Park. We parked near the visitor center and took the half mile walk down through meadows and wind-shaped vegetation to the lighthouse located on a protrusion of the coastal terrace into the Pacific Ocean. The lighthouse was built in 1909 and has provided light to countless ships navigating the treacherous (often foggy) waters off the coast. The lighthouse and accompanying buildings have since been rehabilitated providing a great opportunity to see a historic site as it was a hundred years ago. View complete web album.
