Staying home long enough to tell Mariah that the kitchen and doors upstairs were freshly painted, we headed off to enjoy our unique National Park.
We do have a National Park here in San Diego, and we were off to celebrate the hundredth anniversary of the National Park Service by climbing to the top of the lighthouse. Battery E’s Control Station was also open….such fascinating stuff just a few miles from the house.
I never knew it was open before. It’s a fascinating, two level, WWII fire control station for Battery E…or Battery Ashburn. The battery itself has now been repurposed by the Navy, but the fire control station has been repaired and restored by military volunteers.
It was a lovely morning in the sun, then after salad at home, a quickie trip to ROSS where G got a two inch smaller belt. Less worn out looking too.
