After grabbing sandwiches at the trusty corner market, we opted for the longer, scenic route to Point Reyes. This took us through cattle pastures and along Stinson Beach.
|How funny is it that this many people want to sit on the beach, wearing ski coats and warm hats!?|
|We also saw elk, deer, and two calves that were probably born within the past 24 hours.|

After admiring how far signaling technology has come in the past few centuries (these days they have one light bulb and a fog horn instead of utilizing the lighthouse!), we took the shuttle over to Chimney Rock. There we hiked the short distance to the elephant seal overlook.

The most exciting activities to watch are the battles for alpha-male status, and today we got a sneak peak at some of the fighting: males

|These moms are tuckered out. They just lie there while the pups nurse.|
As the sun began to set, we headed home.
Back to work tomorrow!
