Pacific Portal at Shelter Island

I know that I haven't posted in a few days but I've been in San Diego for work. Although it was a business trip, I did have a chance to see a few sites. My Flickr account will be updated later this weekend with pictures from the trip.

This is the Pacific Shelter on Shelter Island in Point Loma. It was right across the street from the hotel where I stayed. Pacific Shelter is a sculptural gazebo. It was designed by James Hubbell and constructed for a May 2006 opening celebration. The structure is sprayed concrete with mosaic tile detailing. The adjacent trellis has concrete columns, timber beams and wrought iron ornamentation.
