You get out in the salty slough, with sandy banks all around you and long LONG grassy kelp underneath you. There are pelicans EVERYWHERE.
Then there is the 'land of sleeping seals'. Haha! They were all lined up on the bank, sunning themselves in rows. Like sausages in a row! The cutest ones were sunning themselves belly up.
But my favorites are the sea otters. I am self-confessed fanatic of them, to the point where I wish I could be on the research team there. It's just too much for me to do right now with getting around and such, but my desire is there and I admire those who work with them.
|Part of the slough. Moss Landing, CA. About 10 miles north of Monterey, CA.|
|The grasslands on the dunes are protected, and you can see why. They are gorgeous. So many layers of color and texture.|
|You really DO get very close to them!|
|I like to think they are all waving to me :) I'm silly that way.|
|Birthday Girl Jen and Ashley!|
|yeah, they're cuties.|
