At the bottom of Talbot Street where it bends into Anchorage Lane you will see Bessemer Path.  I love walking this path.  The path is an easy walk.  It has magnificent views day and night.  You are most likely to always see several types of birds at different times of the year.  There are Great Blue Herons that nest in the pines at the far side of the path.  I have seen many birds at this location.

In the winter I have seen Surf Scoter here.  This area is also frequented by Grebe, Snowy Egret, and Little Blue Heron.  I have also observed mallards, sandpipers, long-billed Curlew, and red-crowned parrots.  Check out the associated Bessemer Path page for more.

Bessemer Path

As you leave Bessemer Path and continue down Anchorage Lane you wind around to Shelter Island Drive.  Views of San Diego, the Coronado Islands, Pt. Loma, and more are features of this scenic island.  Amenities are abundant on Shelter Island where there is a pier, a park, a beach with fire pits, a playground for the children, monuments, sculptures, a boat launch, yacht clubs, sport fishing, entertainment, dining and more.  The text and images below link to the Shelter Island page with more images and galleries.

The next images are from the streets above Bessemer Path and Shelter Island.  The views from here are spectacular.
