More Points

Here’s a quick post of more pix from our flight out to Point Conception. First this cropped shot at maximum zoom on our closest pass. Hope we can get permission to fly around it some time, because I’d like to see the caves on the other side (saw them once when a kindly guy on ATC cleared us to fly past going home to SBA).

I like the wiki for the light, and it has one of my 2009 photos at the bottom. The boat that’s been moored near there every time we’ve gone out, looked like it was being towed by a bunch of seals in an inner tube.

They weren’t. Another illusion pic from the flight is one I took of the rocky shore. Maybe it looks normal to you, but when I look at it sometimes it “flips” as if we were flying “upside down.”

We weren’t. The native peoples called this the Western Gate, ascribing powerful energy to this area. It was an especially magical flight. Maybe the energy there affected us, making these pix even more enchanting for me than they seem to you?
