Road Trip, Ft. Rosecrans National Cemetery

We took a long drive yesterday and ended up at Ft. Rosecrans National Cemetery in San Diego, out at Point Loma..it is so beautiful and peaceful, there is a sense that time has stood still here...the views on either side are breathtaking......
Confirmed as a National Cemetery in 1934, Fort Rosecrans is the final resting place of more than 96,600 men and women of the United States Armed Services and their families...we saw grave sites as far back as the Spanish-American war.....it covers 77 acres.....the above photo is looking out into the Pacific..the other photos below are looking toward San Diego harbor

Down town San Diego....looking across Shelter Island

If you ever get to San Diego, please be sure to go out to the point and see this cemetery. There is alot more to see on the point, Cabrillo National Park is here also, tide pools and a old lighthouse..a wonderful place to spend an afternoon.....not crowded either!

we also went to see where I spent the first 9 years of my life, we lived on Loma Portal, not far from here...we googled my old address (I still remember after over 50 years) and tomorrow I will post what the house I lived in until I was 9 looked like and what it looks like now..quite a difference!
