SoCal Trip - 2 - Dana Point at Sunrise

High above Dana Point is a nice little lookout over the harbor. It was a chilly 47 degrees (F) so we didn't stay long after sunrise.

I believe this is a replica of an early ship which picked up furs and delivered goods way back in the day.  Richard Henry Dana Jr. had signed on such a ship in his youth and later wrote of this area in his book, Two Years Before the Mast. 

 Sun up is obscured by clouds, but the harbor is a quiet place early in the morning.

Looking the opposite way from the harbor is a nice agave.

And right beside the lookout ramada is a huge aloe plant with striking flowers.

Moon setting above the cliffside condos or apartments modestly decorated for Christmas.
