A group of seals huddled together on the beach
Elephant Seal Viewing Area, the signs said as we were driving south on CA 1 a couple of days ago. And as we got to the area we were astounded by the view of hundreds of these seals lounging on the beach for maybe a half mile or more. At first, it looked as if they were all dead, but occasionally you could see one move a little bit. There was no room for us to pull our motorhome and toad over to park and see the seals, so we made a vow to return on a day trip to see them. Knowing we were going to also visit Hearst Castle, about six miles to the south, we knew we could do both on the same trip. Today was the day.
