Point Cabrillo Lighthouse

A few miles north of the Mendocino Headlands is Point Cabrillo, another landmass that juts out into the Pacific Ocean. The Point is home to Point Cabrillo Light Station and a state park. There are lovely views of the ocean and beautiful cliffs that plunge into the ocean. Here's some photos:

Sunset one evening, with a blustery 20-25 mph wind and temperatures in the mid-40s. It was quite chilly on the headland.
We stayed at the Lighthouse Inn, the renovated lightkeeper's house.
The lighthouse is surrounded by a 270 acre nature preserve.
The lighthouse. More of a house than a tower, in contrast to the tall lighthouses we're used to on the North Carolina coast.
