San Pedro was used by ships as far back as the 1540s, often for smuggling goods onto the coast of Southern California.  It was the first land grant from Spain to Mexico, and it currently shares the Port of Los Angeles with Long Beach.   On the rugged cliffs, Peregrine Falcons have made their nests, and photographers from near and far await the spring fledglings.  Red foxes are often seen along the cliffs and  the beaches as they share the habitat with coyotes and raptors!  This is my home and it offers an abundance of urban wildlife to photograph!
