These are just some shots from the car driving up the coast on a foggy morning to see the sea lions.
On one side you have rolling hills and barns
and on the other side of the highway you have the Pacific. Truly the most beautiful place in the world to me. My inlaws are getting up in years and may sell Elle Cottage someday and we will miss coming here so often. We will come but we will be renting houses like we used to do many years ago.
We love to visit the sea lions as this is their haul out area and the males, cows an pups are all scattered in the hundreds along the beach. Mating season brings the big boys out and they fight for territory on the beach. Fascinating to see.
They stretch all down the beach. Q says it stinks there. It does a little but it is so worth the sight.
Oh, and I had to share these. A Spoonful Of had these on her blog and I just thought they were perfect for Mardi Gras. She makes some great baked goods. Go over and check these out.
