Elephant Seals play fighting

On Saturday we set off along the Pacific Coast Highway – what an experience! The sea was covered in fog but when we were high up we looked out over the clouds – it was like being in an aeroplane! This was not the white-knuckle ride I thought it was going to be and we both enjoyed it.

Shortly before we arrived at our destination – Cambria, we saw a sign for ‘elephant seals’ so we pulled over and walked along the beach to see dozens of enormous elephant seals. There was a guide there, just chatting to people and telling them about the seals. The seals were hunted almost to extinction as their blubber made good oil. In 1996 only 1 seal pup was born on this beach, in 2004 – 2500 were born!
