California’s Sonoma Coast
If you have been reading my Posts for very long you have gotten the idea that I love the beach…the ocean.
California’s coastline is easily recognizable having been filmed in so many movies & television shows.
It is breathtaking, even on a windy (very windy), chilly (very chilly) day.
The signs along the beach remind visitors to not turn their backs on the water because of the potential for rogue waves.
This wave got me…it rolled up the beach farther than I expected, so I had wet feet for the rest of the day.
The birds stayed on the ground & I guess this is seaweed of some variety.
While trying to catch a wave as it splashed up the side of the rock face I noticed something in the water.
At first I thought it was a buoy, but then realized it was a sea lion.
Of course, it didn’t stick it’s entire head out of the water until I put the camera down. :0(
If you have the opportunity, drive the Pacific Coast Highway from San Francisco up to Mendocino. Your cell phone will be without reception (that’s reason enough!) & the scenery is beautiful.
