Elephant Seals, Cambria, California

We welcomed the new year in beautiful Cambria, California. There is always plenty to do in Cambira; see Hearst Castle, wine tasting through Paso Robles, visit Piedras Blancas Lighthouse or walk along Moonstone beach.

Having a limited time after visiting the downtown area to look through the art galleries, we decided that we should go and see the Elephant Seals as they were calving. Following a trip just north of Hearst Castle to see the elephant seals we stopped to photograph the Piedras Blancas Lighthouse as the sun slipped over the horizon and night set in, and the new year storm took hold.
