Today is our friend Connie's birthday.
I suggested that a fun thing to do
is to book a tour on an electric boat
that tours around the Elkhorn Slough.
This meanders 7 miles inland from Monterey Bay,
and is the largest tract of tidal salt marsh in California
outside of San Francisco bay.
It is home to a diverse population of migratory birds
and otters, harbor seals, and other wildlife.
We started out at 11 am in bright sunny skies.
No disturbing of the wildlife..
we saw these Sea Lions sunning..
we saw lots of Cormorants sunning,
waiting for fish..
There were hundreds of them!
we all thoroughly enjoyed it!
If you're ever in the area,
for sure book Monterey Bay Eco Tours.
I always get a kick out of the harbor seals sunning themselves, but boy do they stink! You'd think with all the swimming they'd smell better.ReplyDelete
I found myself smiling at the pictures of those sea otters.ReplyDelete
That sounds like a wonderful tour. I love that it is electric and quiet not disturbing any of the wildlife. Your pictures are wonderful the sacked out seal and the otters both made me laugh. Thanks!ReplyDelete
