Recently took a nice ride down the coast to visit friends and relatives, when my mother and I decided to stop and see the sites, one of them being the Pigeon Point Lighthouse. It was a beautiful day, the seals sunbathing on the rocks, near a posted sign; “On the watch for “Killer Whales”.
Northern California is the breeding grounds for Great White Sharks, as well. Now both can be seen on rare occasions, and during migration seasons, weather changes, and with the migrating seals who have made the northern coast there home.
The park remains open to visitors daily. A dedicated group of volunteer docents is on-site Friday through Monday to host the bookshop, lead tours around the historic grounds and organize a shore whale watching program each spring. For reservations, and tours contact;
Admiring the lighthouse from a distance. It’s a small tour, but a nice break from all the driving, also there are small studios and lit hotel rooms if you wanted to stay the night. Call for reservations.
