Point Vicente Lighthouse in Rancho Palos Verdes

I’m not surprised there is a lighthouse located along the Palos Verdes coastline.  It is notoriously rocky and I’m sure mariners appreciate the extra light as they navigate their way along the rocky coast.  I am not often out on the water, but I do appreciate the coastal flavor it adds when I zip up and down Palos Verdes Drive South and Palos Verdes Drive West in Rancho Palos Verdes.

Point Vicente Lighthouse was manned until automated equipment was added in 1971.  On November 17, 1979 Point Vicente Lighthouse was added to the National Registry of Historic Sites.  Isn’t it nice to have a little piece of  national history perched on the Palos Verdes bluffs above the Pacific Ocean?
