Point Lobos, Place Of The Barking Sea Lions (#330)

Down the coast a couple of miles from Monterey is the Point Lobos State Reserve.

Lots of seals, sea birds and definitive seascapes and rock formations.

    So beautiful and peaceful! Lovely shots Annie. I would sit there all day watching the seals. Thanks for sharing. :D

    • They are all so robust from their winter stay further south. The seals camouflaged so easily on the rocks below me. I had to stand and stare for a long time to make them out. Thank you, Sonel.

  7. I don’t know how I missed this post. Because sea lions are one of my very favorite creatures EVER!!!! Thanks for sharing these precious photos.

  8. I remember my first trip to Point Lobos back in 1992. I didn’t want to leave. In fact, the whole California Coast kept calling me after that trip, and 11 months later, I had moved to California from Texas.
