Rainy Day at the Beach

Recently we had a very rainy and windy weekend, and it was glorious at the beach!

Sea lions haul out at several spots in this area.

I call this the street gull. It was sitting in the middle of the street, then started walking. But never really going anywhere.

Babies! This little guy/girl was noisily nursing. And when mom moved a bit and her flipper covered a teat, she got a gentle bite on the flipper from baby. A good mom, she moved her flipper.

One of several local hang outs. Brown pelicans are everywhere along our coast.

Sea gull on sand.

Juvenile seagull, sitting and peeping non-stop. “Mom, feed me.” Mom did not react.

Crashing waves.
