Sarah and Joel

Joel at Año Nuevo

      I gave Jacky Lewis a call while Joel was visiting for a week, and she and Sarah came up to Año Nuevo with us to check out the elephant seals. Año Nuevo is a hotbed of them. They've taken over a little offshore island (setting up quarters in an abandoned house out there), and in the winter months they're sprawled out among the dunes. It's their mating season.

      Below, Joel pauses to look out at the surf as we head towards the staging area where we'll meet a docent.

      A docent led us out to the dunes to keep us at a respectful distance from the elephant seals. Here Joel and Sarah must be listening to one of the docent's jokes.

      Below, they are taking the beach route back to the parking lot.

[Nota bene: This page, like all the others in this site, is in progress. The text is mostly irrelevant and hastily written stuff designed just to fill the gaps between the photos -- and the photos themselves are not the best, but simply what I happen to have on hand. Please let me know if you find anything false, misleading, offensive, or intrusive to your privacy. It's hard to maintain privacy on the internet! Let me know too if there's a photo or something in the text that should be removed or something that should be added. I have not set up this site primarily for my own sake but for my family and friends -- and I welcome all corrections, additions, and suggestions about how to improve it!]
