All this natural beauty and right behind us its all concrete and buildings. The urban sprawl is so complete that there is very little land left undeveloped. As beautiful as the coastline is this is not a place for me. Just too many people.
It was a fun day watching the antics of all the birds, seals and sea lions.
Here are some of our memories.
|There was a heavy fog coming in off the ocean so |
everything was a little fuzzy.
Great view though.
|Seals and their pups were everywhere. Junior is having lunch.|
|Some of the moms were frolicking with their pups in the surf.|
|Big yawn, stretch and back to sleep again. |
Nice set of pearly whites. Very sharp teeth.
Great for ripping fish apart.
|Looks like this guy was struck by a boat propeller|
|When the seals are giving birth, December to March, |
you can't go down on the beach but you can still get pretty close.
|I wish I knew what he was dreaming about.|
|Every once in a while a flock of Pelicans would fly overhead.|
You could almost feel their wings.
|A new Yoga pose. He stayed in this position for quite some time. |
Really wanted to sneak up and scratch his tummy.
|Sometimes it looked like they were posing.|
|Seals weren't the only ones reproducing.|
|We think they are Cormorants. Our bird book doesn't show them with the blue throats but everything else about them spells Cormorant.|
|The museum found a purpose for boats that don't float anymore.|
Thursday we are heading to the famous San Diego Zoo. Our last day of activity before the forecasted winter storm is to hit the coast.
