Day 12: Seals of the Pacific Highway

Today we travelled down the Pacific Highway from San Francisco towards Los Angeles.

It was some of the most enjoyable driving of the holiday, as the road twisted through the Pacific coastline.


During the drive, we came across an elephant seal viewing point, and so stopped to have a look.

Ruari had been sleeping in the car, and was awoken by Chris saying: "Ruari, are you coming to see the seals?" A rather unconventional awakening.

There were many seals lying on the beach; many of the males were fighting with each other.


We are spending the night in a settlement called Oceano, and completing the journey to Los Angeles in the morning.
