Long Beach, CA with Photos

The last time I was in Long Beach, CA was in 2005 for the same conference - the National Emergency Number Association Annual Conference and Trade Show. Did not spend much time walking around in 2005.
This time I had a little more time, and the weather was great, so I took a walk. From the hotel room window I could see a Lighthouse in the distance. I have taken pictures of Lighthouses in several coastal states and I was not going to pass up this opportunity.
This Lighthouse gives some terrific views of the Long Beach skyline -

In addition this spot overlooks (though still a ways away) the Queen Mary, which permanently docked here in about 1967.
Getting to the Lighthouse requires a walk through the Shoreline Village area that includes Bubba Gumps, the Aquarium and other shops and a marina.

There is a lot to do and see in Long Beach. But the lighthouse, known as the "Lions Lighthouse For Sight" and dedicated in December of 2000 was my point of interest.
