A lesson from the elephant seals

Deb and I drove 55 miles up the coast yesterday to Piedras Blancas, above San Simeon, to take a look at the elephant seals. Fascinating buggers. They spend eight to ten months a year in the open ocean, then migrate thousands of miles twice a year to land-based rookeries like Piedras Blancas for birthing, breeding, molting and rest.

There aren’t a lot of seals there right now, but in the coming weeks, about 15,000 are expected to gather. Deb grabbed some nice shots of some of them.

One important thing I learned yesterday from the elephant seals:

They know how to enjoy their leisure time.

Bravo!
