Ted and I traveled to Ano Nuevo State Park (1.5 hours away) and went on a guided tour to see elephant seals basking/fighting on the beach. If you click on some of the photos you will see dark shapes ... those are some of the 3,000 plus pound male creatures. I had never been to the site and LOVED it. Maybe I will make another reservation and return in February. There are supposed to be a lot more elephant seals there then. Ano Nuevo means "New Year." Pretty appropriate to go on New Years Eve!!
