Casa Loma is a castle built in Toronto, Canada, in the early 1900s by the richest financier at the time. He spent millions to build 98 rooms, 30 bathrooms, 25 fireplaces and much more. The castle is now a tourist destination and event venue. The Italian stained-glass dome in the Conservatory with the grapevine theme was designed by the Robert McCausland Studio in Toronto. This work of art is backlit with 600 light bulbs so the beauty of the glass could be seen by day or night.

Loma is the Spanish word for hill. The original name of the peninsula was La Punta de la Loma de San Diego, translated as Hill Point of San Diego. This was later anglicized to Point Loma.
Originally, there were no permanent indigenous settlements on Point Loma because of a lack of fresh water.
Tidepools remain hidden just under the surface of the sea at Point Loma in San Diego.

My son told me I had to visit Casa Loma, well, I got lost a couple of times so there was not enough time to go inside. I took a few shots on the property however a lot of area was off limits. I was very disappointed. I found out after I left that I was on the wrong end of the property so I will have to go back another tine.
