The Roving Rowes

Visit

Palos Verdes, CA

The city of Palos Verdes, CA, lies on the shore of the Pacific Ocean southeast of Los Angeles. We did not have much time to spend here - only a couple of hours - but the scenery was fabulous and we hit it at a great time - the end of the day.

Description

Mansion (small)

Nestled on the hillside overlooking the ocean we saw this large, stately mansion.

Lighthouse (small)

Just down the street from the mansion within a gated community stood a lighthouse. From the vantage point of a nearby parking area we confirmed that it remains operational.

Santa Catalina Island (small)

The parking area stands atop a cliff overlooking the shore. In the distance Santa Catalina Island provides a grand presence.

Wave splashing (small)

Just below us the waves broke and sprayed spectacularly over rocks jutting out of the water.

Sunset Animated GIF (small)

What is more amazingly beautiful than a sunset? Several people had arrived at the parking area by this time, apparently to enjoy this gorgeous display. Here we present a series of four photos as the sun went progressively lower. (NOTE: This is a series of four pictures which will load in sequence, then return you to this page.
