Last weekend Pam and I met some family members in Oakland for an Athletics game on Saturday night. After the game we went to Vallejo. On the return trip on Sunday we drove the Pacific Coast Highway from Santa Cruz to San Luis Obispo. It was a grey day. The drive was much different from my last trip down Highway 1.
We stopped in San Simeon to see elephant seals. They are such strange and fascinating creatures. The large males were not around, but the females and juveniles were plentiful.
After the seals I got a picture of Hearst Castle and the San Simeon Pier.
It’s a beautiful highway to have so close by. I’m sure we’ll be back to Big Sur for more exploring.
