Pt. Dume

pt dume peacockIt's amazing to look at old photos of Pt. Dume (Pt. Duma on older maps, and actually named Pt. Dumetz, for Francisco Dumetz, the Franciscan padre who founded the San Fernando mission.) The Point was a big hump of land poking into the Santa Monica bay, pt dume sunsetno trees, no houses, no roads. May Rindge drilled for oil there (came up with clay and founded Malibu Potteries.) Hughes Aircraft employees built the first ranch houses there, many of them from concrete block. Now it's a wealthy enclave where even the few modest homes that remain sell for millions. Here's a Pt. Dume peacock heading down a friend's driveway. And here's the sunset on Saturday, the one bit of color in what was an otherwise gray and misty day.
