While vacationing in California, I was always on the lookout for wildlife (click on photos to enlarge):
17 Mile Drive, Pebble Beach, winds through a lush forest and along a rocky coastline. How wonderful it must be to live here. We stopped at Bird Rock, home to sea lions and ... well, lots and lots of birds.
A sign along 17 Mile Drive advises visitors not to feed the animals, but this squirrel looks like he does all right.
In Muir Woods, a deer ventured close to the trail for a drink. Like a pack of hungry paparazzi, tourists snapped at the bit of fur visible through the leaves.
Sea lions or seals? I'm not sure, but these guys in San Francisco are a noisy, comic bunch.
Question: We wondered why is the rock along the coast is white? Is it bird poop? I'm not quite sure what that speck is in the middle of the photo -- a bee, a helicopter, Superman?
