Lovers Point
Pacific Grove California


This was originally named "Lovers of Jesus Point" in the era when Pacific Grove was a Methodist retreat. It features the most swimmable cove on the peninsula and a beautiful grassy park on the point. The Victorian bath-house now houses a restaurant.

When I was a child my family made many weekend trips to Pacific Grove. It is nice to reflect on how little it has changed. There is no longer a glass-bottomed boat ride in the cove, and the railroad tracks have been converted to a bike path, but otherwise it is pretty much the same.
