Point Bonita Lighthouse
We were doing some short hike in Marine Headland Recreation. Thanks to the very kind and friendly ranger, we were invited go along with a group who has reservation for the tour of the light house in the evening. It was a beautiful sunset on one side and a full moon rising over the Golden Gate Bridge on the other side. We didnít have the tripod with us so the full moon picture didnít come out as I like but good enough. I will post that tomorrow for those who like to see it, check it out tomorrow.

Point Bonita Light is a lighthouse located at Point Bonita at the San Francisco Bay entrance near Sausalito, California. Point Bonita was the last manned lighthouse on the California coast.

Historical Information from USCG web site:
Point Bonita Light Station had the first fog signal on the West Coast. It was an Army surplus 24-pounder siege gun. This light is the only one in America that can be reached only by crossing a suspension bridge which is a replica of the Golden Gate Bridge.
In 1877 the lighthouse was moved to its current location. This location required the builders to overcome many challenges, including the need for a hand carved, 118-foot long hard rock tunnel.
