Lovers Point Park

When I saw the name of this park it reminded me of the show Happy Day's and  when they would refer to "inspiration point."  I could certainly feel inspired to do just about anything from this view.  Lovers Point is located on Ocean View Blvd
Pacific Grove, CA 93950
I have read that Pacific Grove actually used to be a Methodist retreat back in the 1800s, and the park was originally called 'Lovers of Jesus Point' (hence the missing apostrophe) until the name was shortened later on. (source)
As I mentioned Monday, B and I were strolling through the houses in Pacific Grove and walked over to this park.   This yellow house (below) has the most amazing view, right?  There is a large formation of rocks along this park which is where I sat from and took this picture. 
This beach is perfect for picnics, walks on the beach and great for kids because the surf is calm (oh there did seem to be a lot of couples with goo goo ga ga eyes walking around...)
Is there a "lover's point in your neck of the woods?

Stunning photos...love California beaches. Though we have some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, such as Clearwater Beach, but no rocks, other than those put there by man. They just add such depth to the ocean's scene, and you captured them beautifully.

I need a house like that on Tybee Island. Thats my favorite beach in the US. Mainly cause I have seen it the most, but it does have swings on it where you can sit and watch the Dolphins early in the morning.
My all time favorite beach is found at Samara, Costa Rica.
Love following you around California!

Hi Laura from Monterey! I am Lexie from Santa Cruz just across the harbor. I visit Monterey & Pacific Grove almost weekly and know the area quite well. Its one of my favorite local places with the oceans beauty, the shopping, restaurants and walking trails. We should meet and have a visit at Pacific Grove area. Did you know the big yellow house is actually a B&B that has been there since the 1800's? My passion is local history of the Monterey and Pacific grove area. The walk from the gate near Aislomar Beach to Lovers Point is unmatched in coastal beauty. We are so lucky to live here in such a magical place. I know all the secret local best places for food and walking.
