SkyWatch Friday - Breakwater & Fishing Pier

Visit other Brilliant skies today, here!
Happy 201st Birthday Mr. Lincoln!
Have a great weekend all!

San Pedro Bay is an inlet on the Pacific Ocean coast of southern California, United States. It is the site of the Port of Los Angeles and the Port of Long Beach, which together form the fifth-busiest port facility in the world (behind the ports of Shanghai, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Shenzhen) and easily the busiest in the Western Hemisphere.

A 13.6 kilometer (8.4 mile) long breakwater stretches across most of the bay, with two openings to allow ships to enter the port areas behind it. The initial western section of the breakwater (above), called the San Pedro Breakwater, was constructed between 1899 and 1911; the Middle breakwater was completed over the next twenty-five years, and the Long Beach breakwater was finished after World War II.

  1. Had Mr. Booth gone home and my cousin had lived I wonder what the world would be like?

  2. Tanks for the beautiful shot. The info is interesting - as our largest port, I am in awe of it even more!


So nice to hear from you!

Warm regards,
