This picture's location is shown as on the Navy base at Port Hueneme. This is incorrect. While it looks simialar to buindings at Channel Islands Harbor just west of here, the tree on the dirt area in the foreground makes the exact location hard to pin down.
I live in Port Hueneme. This photo is not taken in Port Hueneme. Looks like the big rock on oceanside of the coast highway (Hwy.1)that Google Earth puts at 34 degrees 5'9.17"N 119 degrees 3'37.07"W and taken looking roughly WNW with fog present.
Photo is positioned correctly, but misidentified as "Hueneme Beach" which is on the other side of the harbor.
Obviously, the location is on the harbor side, not the beach side as indicated on the map.
This is actually Hollywood by the Sea. "Oxnard Beach" is about 3 miles NW of indicated location.
This ship is the ex-USS PAUL F. FOSTER (DD 964), not SPRUANCE.
unfortunately, now out of business. RIP
This is Ventura Rd SB in Port Hueneme (NOT Oxnard!)
Also, location is about 1/4 mile north of map point.
We used to call this "Hobart's Pond"
this is NOT "la playa oxnard"! It is Hueneme Beach Park, Port Hueneme
