Elephant seals

After Hearst Castle, we drove up the coast just a couple miles to a beach where elephant seals usually hang out. I was excited to see they were here this time year. Normally they come around for breeding season but this time of year was for molting.

I could have watched them for hours. Most of them were sleeping but once in while they would move around. Two males were battling each other in the photo below. It was crazy to hear the noises they made.
