When Suzanne was here recently, she wanted to see the elephant seal viewing area. We weren't entirely sure how far north it was and the afternoon was getting away from us. Also, it was very foggy so it wouldn't have been the best day for seeing much. I had a 100% free day yesterday, aside from taking care of the animals, so I took a drive to Cambria and north to San Simeon, in hopes of finding a pretty day. I could not have been more satisfied. I not only found the elephant seals, I found the most gorgeous spot for walking and taking photos. Truly gorgeous! This is the Piedras Blancas lighthouse just north of the viewing area. I am definitely going to return....one day I might have that wide angle lens that I have on my mind.
