Point Bonita

An afternoon spent at Point Bonita on Monday proved to be one filled with sunshine and cool ocean breezes.  I wore a lightweight button front shirt with a cardigan (an L.L.Beam kelly green sweater purchased with a birthday gift certificate) and a jacket vest.  I was plenty warm. 
The tunnel in the rock.
The hike leading to the lighthouse is not a difficult one but is a bit uneven along the path.  You need to wear proper shoes.  Dress in layers just in case, it can be quite windy.  If needed, there are Port-a-Potties at the parking lot before beginning the trek. 
Look at the beautiful red and green contrast on the rocks covering the entrance to the tunnel.
Close up of the red growth on the rocks at the tunnel entrance.  What is the red growth?  I forgot to ask the ranger and I've yet to find the answer online.
First glimpse of the lighthouse.
The newly constructed footbridge crossing over.
Stopped for some french fries and milkshakes on the way home.
