Driving down PCH (Pacific Coast Highway 1), we saw a number of viewing pull-outs for elephants seals. The ones on the beach this time of year are juveniles or sub-adult males and they were HUGE! The big bulls arrive on the scene in December and I bet they are really something to see. The volunteer at the viewing area told us the real action starts in January – February when the mating seasons begins. The locals bring down their lawn chairs and picnic on the beach for the afternoon during this time. Is nothing sacred?
