Elephant Seals, One of my 10 to do’s for 2010

Look at that happy mama and baby!
Thousands have come to this part of the coast to mate, give birth and grow strong.

 

I just love Marine Mammals. I love dolphins and whales and seals of all varieties. I really love these elephant seals! This is my second trip to visit them, they come a shore in Jan- March to the Central California coast to bred, give birth and give their young the right start in life.

. I decided that I wanted to do 10 things this year that I’ve always wanted to do or have already done and want to do again. This is one of them…. I was born Oct 10th, 1955 and this is the year I turn 55. on October 10th, 2010. 10-10-10! Pretty good huh!

Enjoy these pictures and if you’re ever in California in the winter months- be sure you make the trek to see this amazing natural phenomena. Next Januray Cambria, CA will be having their 2nd annual Elephant Seal Festival and I’ve already told the organizers I want to come back next year and volunteer. Not sure what they need me to do, but I know I’m back for the Elephant Seal birthing season for yet another year!!
