Fort Nuestra de la Soledad

Welcome to Fort Soledad!
by Pa Rock

After leaving Big John and Bessie to tend to the smaller tourists, we walked on up the hill to the remains of Fort Soledad, an old Spanish outpost overlooking the blue Pacific.  Not much remains of the old fort, just a low wall or two, a couple of enclosures for guards, and three cannons pointing out to sea.  While there is not much left of the fort, the views across the bay and out to sea were magnificent.

Enjoy the day, as we did!
