In better news we had a lovely weekend last week and were able to get outside to enjoy the gorgeous weather. We went over to Half Moon Bay (our favorite beach super close to our apartment!) walked around, then made our way down the coast to Ano Nuevo and then Santa Cruz.
I had heard that you can see elephant seals at Ano Nuevo but had no idea they would literally be right in front of you lying on the sand. Tim and I were just walking looking down at the beach and luckily looked up and one was sleeping 5 feet in front of us. They are such massive creatures. They were pretty fun to watch.
