Angels Gate Lighthouse

This is the historical Angels Gate Lighthouse located as you are leaving out of San Pedro, CA by cruise. My husband and I were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary cruising on the Norwegian's newest mega ship called the Bliss. This is the gorgeous scene we saw as we were heading to the Mexican Riviera.
Angels Gate Lighthouse has marked the entrance to the port since 1913. Did you know that the breakwater is 9,250 feet long and contains nearly three million tons of rock? And the rock was brought over from Santa Catalina Island.
Angel’s Gate is situated on a forty-foot concrete square. Built to withstand rough seas, the framework is structural steel, with steel plates to the second floor. The lighthouse was automated in 1973, thus eliminating the need for keepers. Emmy Vickers,
