Point Lobos sits just South of Carmel on the coastline. Not only does it contain very cool coastline, but you can see Pebble Beach from certain points within the reserve. This day it was really windy and it was a bit interesting to see the waves pound the rocks along the coastline. There were a few Seals on hand and well, some resting on rocks, and some that seemed to be dozing in the water.
Check out the 54 second video clip to see how the wind fueled waves were hammering the coastline.
Welcome to my travel blog. Thus far, I have shared a few of my recent trips, some highlights below :
1) Japan, Sep 2014. With the allure of a very foreign culture to me, non-English speaking, Hiroshima, Tokyo, Shinkansen (bullet trains), Tsukiji fish market, and Sumo wrestling, it was time for a two week break from life and traveled to Japan for the second half of September. Wow, what an amazing place, just loved every minute I spent there exploring.
2) On assignment in Berkeley, CA (Sep 2008 - Apr 2009). I explored the San Francisco Bay area in some detail during the weekends I was there ... full info
Nice HauloutThere were a few Seals lazying on and around the rock closest to the Seal you see there on the beach looking straight at the camera. They lollygagged around in the surf until this one allowed the waves to dump it up on the beach. I merely had to wave to get this one's attention.
I can see CarmelIf you take highway 1 to Ocean Avenue in Carmel, and then go West on Ocean Avenue as far as you can go, you end up on that white beach you see just beyond the tip of this rock outcropping. Then, if you look just to the left of that white beach area, you see one of the world's most well known golf courses, Pebble Beach.
