Today, my mom and I decided to drive up the coast to see the elephant seals in San Simeon. We figured we would go see the babies born this year before they got too big (they already got pretty big). We watched the seals up to their usual antics of lumbering across the sand, waiting for their mom's milk, or just being lazy. On the way back down the coast we stopped at another beach to pick through the rocks and the driftwood, and do a bit of bird watching. The weather was beautiful, and a welcome change from the rainy start to the weekend.
