My Wardrobe, Myself

The intersection of clothing, emotions, and life

NOTE: This post was originally published on my previous blog, Recovering Shopaholic.

In my two most recent “photography interludes,” I shared two of my favorite walking locations, Shelter Island and La Playa.  In addition to those two picturesque locales, there are a couple of other places where I enjoy walking and taking photos.  In today’s post, I’m going to introduce you to the fishing harbor in Point Loma, which is a short walk from where I live.

About the Point Loma Fishing Harbor

The Point Loma fishing harbor is located on the San Diego Bay and is home to three major fishing charter boat companies:  H&M Landing, Point Loma Sportfishing, and Fisherman’s Landing.  These companies not only take fisherman out for single or multi-day fishing trips, they also offer whale watching excursions during the migration seasons for the gray and blue whales. The harbor is also home to the famous Point Loma Seafoods, which opened its doors to the public back in 1963 and is both a fresh fish market and a popular restaurant.

The San Diego Skyline

One of the things I like best about the fishing harbor is the view of the San Diego skyline from that location.  I’ve taken many photos of this view on both sunny and cloudy days, but I believe the best views are available at or just after sunset.

The same view on a cloudy day.  Just as beautiful, I think! 

The Fishing Boats

I also enjoy seeing the various fishing boats and the sea birds that hang out hoping to either catch fish on their own or receive handouts from fisherman.

More Favorite Photos…

Below are some more of my favorite photos taken at the Point Loma fishing harbor over the past year.

I sometimes see kayakers and paddleboarders on the water near the harbor.

kids playing on the beach

There’s a nice beach by the harbor and I sometimes see kids and dogs playing there.

It’s nice to sit on a bench and watch the boats (no, this isn’t me…).

I love the colors and reflections in the water after the sun goes down. 


I hope you have enjoyed my Point Loma fishing harbor photos.  I’m almost done sharing my favorite walking locations with you, but there is one more place that I will introduce you to next month.  If you enjoyed this post and would like to see more of my photos, check out the rest of my “photography interlude” posts or the photos I’ve posted on Instagram (I don’t post there very often, but there are quite a few past images for you to look at).

    Lovely photo journey and I am deeply drawn to your style. This leaves me feeling like I walked along with you while you took the photographs.

    1. Debbie Roes says:

      This is a very high compliment, Terra! I wish you WERE walking along with me while I took the photos. Perhaps the next time you’re in San Diego 🙂

  2. Hilda says:

    Lovely photos, thank you for sharing! I am a regular reader but I very seldom comment, so I will take this opportunity to thank you for all the insight and inspiration you share with your readers on your blog. Much appreciated!

    1. Debbie Roes says:

      I really appreciate your kind words, Hilda. Thank you for taking the time to comment and I’m glad you enjoy my blog and liked my photos!

      Thank you, Jane! Glad you liked them 🙂

  4. Dory says:

    I don’t think that I will go to San Diego one day (because I am living in Europe), but your pictures are beautiful and I am sure I would pass to see your city in real if I were less far 🙂

    1. Dory says:

      *was… and also to improve my English 🙂

    2. Debbie Roes says:

      Your English is a lot better than my French, Dory! I’m glad you are enjoying my San Diego photos and I hope you will make it here one day, but I understand that it’s very far away. I would love to see all of Europe, but it’s not likely that I will. I have been to France once (1999) and I do hope I will be back one day. It’s SUCH a beautiful country!
