As a VIP, I always keep in mind that every visitor has a story…and sometimes those stories are revealed to us. During my TPERP shift I crossed paths with a wonderful family down at the Coastal Trail/Tidepool area: a father, mother, and their four children. The father told me that Cabrillo National Monument is a very special place to them and that when he was a boy he would often come here with his grandmother who loved the lighthouse very much. In her honor he actually got a tattoo of the lighthouse (which included Snow White whom his grandmother adored). Here’s the whimsical tattoo he shared with me and I wanted to pass this along!

  1. This (tattoo) is the coolest thing a visitor brought into the Park! And, our volunteer Katrina to engage a conversation with a visitor to reveal this?!! Unbelievably engaged conversation, ever!!!!!
