Walking in Point Lobos – seals!

More updates from my yoga retreat last week in Big Sur …

Less than a mile from the house where we stayed, which looked like this:

Carmel Highlands

is the Point Lobos State Natural Reserve, and it’s a wonderful place to walk and explore. This is the cove near where we parked. You can see how foggy/cloudy it was all the time in this photo.

It was a beautiful place.

Lots of rocky coves and the ocean was gentle here.

Simply gorgeous!

What was really  fun to see – and they were all over the place – were the seals. Like this baby seal who kept wriggling around trying to get comfortable on his rock.

Look at the nice back bend this guy can do 🙂

A gorgeous egret (I think it’s an egret – don’t quote me on this one, I’m no ornithologist!)

I’ve got some videos coming too … hang in there. More on its way.

    After consulting my birding book, I stand by my earlier opinion! It does appear to be a great blue heron.

    Love the seals. The little ones are so cute.
