We saw the Seals
On the spur of the moment we drove up to Cambria on Sunday to see the elephant seals. It was prime season. The moms were just finishing up nursing the pups, the bulls were challenging each other, and some mating was going on too. I got so many great photos I hardly know what to do with them all. I loaded some of them to flickr.
I was a bit shaky when I switched my still camera to video, but here's one good shot of the bulls challenging. These animals weigh several thousand pounds! Be sure to turn the sound on too.
We stayed at the Cambria Shores Inn, facing the ocean. They welcome dogs there, and have a special gift basket for the dogs when you arrive. It's a nice place-- in the morning they hang your breakfast in a basket outside your door.
