Exploring the northern end of Shelter Island, San Diego
The thing that brings me to Shelter Island is the Bali Hai, which has been there as long as I have been alive. We decided to drive to the opposite side of Shelter Island and go for a walk. There is a walking path almost the length of the island. We started near the Tunaman's Memorial, which commemorates area tuna fishers who died at sea.
Our next stop was the Yokohama Friendship Bell. This gift recognizes San Diego's sister city in Japan. There is also a charming sculpture of a girl.
The terminus is the Pacific Rim Park. This was designed by noted area artist, James Hubbell. The Park is intended to foster relationships with other cities of the Pacific Rim in Russia, China and Mexico. The Park is easy to miss. It is almost directly behind the Harbor Police building.
The point offers great views of sailboats and Point Loma. It is a short walk with public art installations and shaded benches along the way.
