What a coincidence !!,i've just finished reading a book about the old clipper ships,and the sinking of the Carrier Pigeon on July 6th 1853, at that point,is how it got to be named Pigeon Point,now you have added a picture to my knowledge,thank you Stephen. ;>)

One of the nicer pictures of this landmark. It really
