I love the face of Dana Point
Resolutely facing out to sea
The profile in the sunset reminds me of a weathered ocean lover
Lips tightly pursed against the winds and storms of the sea
Chin resting on the earth with the uptilted face and brow to meet the afternoon sun.
The headland bluffs near Mission San Juan Capistrano presented an obstacle to taking the cow hides to the beach for subsequent loading onto the ship.
So Dana, along with others of the Pilgrim's crew, tossed the hides from the bluffs, while spinning them like a frisbee.
Some hides got stuck part way down the cliff and Dana was lowered with ropes to retrieve them.
The headlands, along with the adjacent present day city, took on Dana's name as Dana Point.
