San Diego in San Diego County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
Old Ballast Point Lighthouse, San Diego
In 1906 Hanorah Flynn and her three children came to live with her father Capt. Splaine at Ballast Point. David Flynn was a young man of 12 at the time, and he spent many hours exploring and playing on the point. He helped his grandfather tend the small, 5th Order lens that guided sailors past Middle Ground Shoal and into the harbor. On weekends he rowed soldiers form Ft. Rosencrans to North Island for outings, and let them row back to sober up.
