Miss Mae spent the day sleeping, begging for food, howling and then barking when put in the bedroom during family mealtime, and sleeping some more. She counts it as a good day (although the howling/barking episode MIGHT have qualified her for the naughty list!).

It is famous for genteel paintings of 1960s ladies in sheer negligees (delightful!).
So sad...it is a unique time capsule beloved by many (including us and my parents, my dad in particular). Au revoir, Albie's...we knew ye well.
Adam's, Albie's sister restaurant, served awesome breakfasts, including delicious corn fritters served with butter and syrup. It is, of course, also closing.

This is Cabrillo National Monument, breathtakingly beautiful, no? It was breathtakingly COLD and windy there today, which I rather enjoyed. I was down by the tidepools, but today was not a low tide so the pools were inaccessible.
The last two pics of are lighthouses (duh)--the first one is the first lighthouse built on Point Loma in 1855...it is up at the top of a bluff, which seemed like a good idea, except that fog and low clouds often obscured the light. The bottom pic is of the lighthouse used today, built in 1891 down at sea level.
