we got more bounce in california...

As I said in an earlier post, photo pops was in town the other week road-tripping through California. Living amongst the trees and rivers of Colorado, he was in need of some serious beach time and he found it. The following photos were taken in Newport Beach in Southern California, and along the Sonoma Coast winding along Highway 1 from the Russian River to Bodega Bay. 4-18-10: UPDATE: Photo Pops tells me that the elephant seals were near Hearst Castle just a few miles North of Cambria, not at Newport Beach. Oops! Sorry about that.

Blind Beach along the Sonoma Coast.

Goat Rock Beach on the Sonoma Coast.

The clouds are moving in. Nature-made water tunnel at Goat Rock Beach.

The Elephant Seals were out in full force near Cambria (see update above). If you've ever been around these guys during mating season then you've heard the loud roaring noises the bulls make.

Ah, I like to think that they're cuddling here, but something tells me this is a protective pose..... Never get too close to a cow and her pups. Don't let the blubber fool you, they can move faster than me and you on sand.

"Feed me!"
