Thank you "Hybrid" for commenting on my Escondido Falls post and suggesting Wayfarer's Chapel as a place to visit!
Built by Lloyd Wright, Frank Lloyd Wright's son, the Wayfarer's Chapel in Palos Verdes is a place where people can meditate, reflect and enjoy the beauty of nature. The church's walls and ceiling are made out of glass, so everywhere you look, you get a beautiful view of the trees. The property overlooks Abalone Cove with a gorgeous view of the ocean. Around the church are small gardens, benches and a tiny visitor's center.
The church is busy with weddings on the weekends, and the only time it is guaranteed to be open to the public is on the odd hour for half an hour. We barely got there in time (I think we arrived at 1:20), but that was enough time to enjoy the interior. At 1:30, they roped off the area and no one except wedding guests were allowed past the ropes.
Parking and admission are free.
After you've seen the chapel, go across the street to check out the Abalone Cove tidepools!
