Today my sweetie and I took a lovely drive up the coast. We stopped along the way at different sights. Not to brag or anything, but we live in paradise just in case you didn't already know it.
|The water at San Simeon Bay was such a beautiful color and so peaceful and calm. |
We saw creatures big and small.
We decided to walk along the beach south of the pier at San Simeon. These elephant seals looked like rocks from far away. As we got closer we realized what we were seeing. They are humongous!! They were actually several miles from the thousands of sea elephant rookery just below Piedres Blancas Lighthouse.
What a life the elephant seals have just hanging on the beach all day! They yell at each other and throw sand around.
I was so excited to see this little guy. I had not seen a banana slug in quite a while. They are kind of gross but cute at the same time. What do you think?
This egret was just hanging out watching the sleepy waves.
The ocean was a beautiful deep blue color. There are sea otters and sea elephants swimming out there.
The fog was coming in and out all day making the sun play peek-a-boo!
We hiked out to the shoreline at Harmony Headlands State Park. I do believe there is a just a tinge of green on the hillside. It is interesting to see such brown hills in February next to an ocean full of water.
We ended the day at Morro Bay for a yummy dinner at the Great American Fish Company. The sun was beautifully setting below the fog at Morro Rock. What a great Valentine's Day with my best friend and forever companion! Thank you, Mike.
