Following the Air Group One general meeting we are going to do something a little different: a field trip to the Cabrillo Monument! There is lots to do there both military and non-military:

  • Military Bunker with reenactors dressed in period clothingMilitary Museum--really good and only takes a few minutes to tour20-minute movies in Visitor Center on whales, Cabrillo and tide pool life--very good!Cabrillo Centennial--art show in Visitor's Center Short hike to lighthouseTide Pools--low tide is at 11:54 am (we may need to park down by water earlier...  lot can fill up quickly)Spectacular views of San Diego--great backdrop for group photosGreat places for a group picnic--bring our own or shareEvent time: 10:30 am - 1:30 pm or so

Bring your camera, comfortable walking/hiking shoes, water and snacks. And a jacket if you tend to get chilly as sometimes the wind up there drops the temperature dramatically.The Fort Rosecrans Cemetery is breathtaking for several reasons and everyone should walk down an aisle and express their gratitude. Cabrillo website: We can carpool from hangar or closer to Cabrillo if we want. The entrance fee is $5 per car.
