We left San Francisco in the morning and drove CA 1 south to Monterey. Along the way, we stopped at Pigeon Point Lighthouse and then Ano Nuevo State Park. We saw lots of birds at both places, but at Ano Nuevo we were prevented from seeing the elephant seals. They said it was because of Covid, but I think that they were just trying to protect the seals. The pictured elephant seal skeleton from the day before will have to serve as stand-in for the live seals that this time we didn’t see.
