San Simeon elephant seals

San Simeon elephant seals

lesley and i were driving down highway one, lost in our thoughts, enjoying each other's quiet company, and noticed a group of people off to the side staring at something. if we had not been given a heads up about the seals, we would have thought these were simply huge rocks strewn about the sandy beach - but noooo. lots and lots of elephant seals, up on shore, lolling about, making all sorts of noise (especially the babies nursing and calling to their mamas). the (quite ugly) males were rather aggressive towards one another - a fascinating stop for us.
