I rode away from the house this morn­ing at 4:50 while the moon was still up and with­in a day of being full. When I got down to La Con­chi­ta I stopped in the hopes of being able to cap­ture the glo­ri­ous sight off to the west.

Poking around in the Seal Sanctuary

I dis­cov­ered on my walk this morn­ing that the Seal Sanc­tu­ary is only for­mal­ly restrict­ed Decem­ber 1st thru May 31st. I’ve seen the sign often and always turned around but this morn­ing a few peo­ple were com­ing along from the direc­tion of the pier so after talk­ing with them and hear­ing their expe­ri­ence I walked on. No seals were “home” but in the fourth pho­to you can see the inter­est­ing seal tracks up and down the beach. It was an inter­est­ing per­spec­tive to look up at the Sanc­tu­ary over­look, i.e. the seal’s view.
