As the drone soared high into the sky, the expansive view of Cabrillo Marina unfolded before my eyes. I often go for a run to and around the marina. But even when I run over the bike path, the highest point of the adjacent street park where I look in the direction of the marina, it doesn’t offer a view even remotely close to what I am now able to look through the drone’s tiny 1/2.3” (CMOS) sensor and 28mm lens. Not only the immediate marinas but also Cabrillo Beach and the pier, as well as the breakwater that stretched far out into the ocean. Welcome to the southernmost tip of South Bay!
