It just goes to show that no matter how long you've been in one place or city, you can always find new places, views, paths, or perspectives. I couldn't believe I hadn't been to Lighthouse Park before. Either that or my memories of being there on the beach and eating rocks as a toddler have been long forgotten.
It pays to be a tourist once in a while. Seek out new views and experiences. No matter how long you've been somewhere, you can always find new places to lay your eyes on and new adventures to dip your toe into.
Even if you think you've been somewhere before, places change. Weather changes with the seasons, light changes with the time of day, and perspective changes with your location. You can travel a journey in reverse direction or access a previously visited place from a different direction. Sailing a boat or paddling a kayak up to a beach you have accessed from land many times before could give you a drastically different experience. A more extreme example would be to climb up the Chief rather than hike it. The permutations are nearly endless!
