Pedro Point Boat Dock is most definitely a one-of-a-kind place. Situated on the slopes of the San Pedro Mountains makes it a little tricky to get down to. It’s a small boating village where generation after generation fisherman are setting out for a good day of fishing, coming back with their catches and their stories! We spent some time watching a fresh catch being cut and prepped for lunch.
Look at this “beauty”!
Up the hill and down over a cliff we found Shelter’s Cove. This is one of the most one-of-a-kind places I’ve ever seen! It’s only reachable by foot or by boat. There are a few cottages and people do live here year-round. In fact, a 94-year old woman lives here and climbs the stairs up everyday to volunteer in the community. That’s one-of-a-kind!
We also had the pleasure of meeting a local resident, Joan Levin, whose passion is preserving the home of Captain Dollar Radio. In 1928 Sir Charles Kingford Smith flew from California to Australia; this was the first time constant radio contact had been maintained over such a vast distance, 7362 miles.
The place is one-of-a-kind in its history, location to the ocean and in its ornate interior and exterior design. The property is threatened by the hillside erosion. As you can see in these pictures, the deck is now only a few feet from the cliff.
Over and Out!
