Cabrillo Tidepools On Point Loma: San Diego, CA

Remember when I told you about our visit to the La Jolla Tidepools when we were in California in April? Well, while we were still in San Diego, my brother in law told us about some more tidepools in the area that might be worth a visit and he was definitely right. They were called the Cabrillo Tidepools and they are located on Point Loma in San Diego, which was even a little closer to our hotel than the tidepools in La Jolla. Score.
