When the big guy has a gun
Early this morning I took off for the Point Loma peninsula:
Green on a map often indicates a national park, national forest, national grasslands, or national monument. If you look at the very end of Point Loma on the map above, you will see a national monument. Cabrillo National Monument is small, though, certainly not taking up all that green area. Instead, most of the green area is the Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery, the U.S. Space and Naval Warfare Systems base (Fort Rosecrans), the Point Loma Naval Base (where you can see real submarines!), and the Military Sealift Command. The main road leading through the green, Cabrillo Memorial Drive, is closed to the public from 5:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. In other words, it’s not a public road, notwithstanding everything the public might think.
My intent was to take pictures of interesting stuff from what I thought was a public road. As I was getting into my car after my last stop (in other words, I got all the pictures I wanted to), the military police stopped to have a little talk with me. He said that pictures were not allowed even though “we all know that people take pictures along here with their cameras and phones.” That was the essence of it. However, since he was big and had a gun…..
Following are some of the pictures I took. Gaze now because if the Attorney General or the Pentagon ask me to take this post down, I will………lol
