The wind has been strong enough out at Point Conception in recent weeks, to make flying there less fun and photography much more challenging. This weekend the wind let up long enough for another scenic visit to one of our favorite spots on the coast. Being a weekend, we couldn't get ATC permission for flying around the point but here are some new pix of the light and keepers quarters. Hope we can get back on a windless weekday for some closeups circling the light and sea caves.

Thanks for the fantastic photos! I really want to make my way to Point Conception one of these days. It's such a prominent feature on the California coast where the land takes a 90 degree turn affecting weather and the ocean. I've seen it from the train, but I need to get my feet on the ground there.

Beautiful spot. Some years ago I was at a barbeque on the Cojo Ranch then we walked down to the lighthouse. I think there were 140 stairs down the hill. A real treat to see it up close.

I actually hiked there, it’s a beautiful magical place, I know the people who used to own the ranch behind it. I’m hoping for a tour inside the light house.
