Coast Drive

Upon leaving Monterey, we drove the '17 mile drive' by Pepple beach. The northern California coastline is quite different than the southern California coastline. It has a rugged beauty all of its own. It isn't really a place where you go lay out and get a suntan, rather it is a place that you sit and take in God's creation. Enjoy a few shots from along the drive.

The Moro Beach rock
We headed towards San Simeon. There is a beach along the way where the elephant seals hang out. Don't ask me why they choose this particular spot - they just do. Years ago, the kids and I went here and in those days you could actually go down on the beach and walk amongst them ~ now, though they have a 'viewing' area. It is amazing to see these huge creatures lying in the sun, throwing sand on themselves, 'talking' to each other and mating. I have a couple of videos of them interacting with each other - IF I can get those to post then you can hear them. There were hundreds of them on the beach.
One final look at the coastline.
Feeling relaxed now :)
