As some of you dear readers know, on the 23rd of each month, the husband and I run away from home and office to become tourists, adventurers, and slackers for the moment. For February's special date, we headed over to Point Lobos State Natural Reserve on the Monterey Peninsula, just south of Carmel by the Sea. Neither of us had ever been there.
We saw quite a lot in the two short hikes that we did. I took 90 photos, more or less. No, no. Don't groan or gasp. I'm not going to post them all. Only a few. Just to tease you. If you ever make it to Monterey, you'll have to go see Pt. Lobos for yourself. It's well worth it.
|Pt. Lobos was established to protect |
the Monterey Cypress trees.
|Pt. Lobos is one of the only |
two cypress tree reserves in the world.
|See how flat they get. |
The husband says it's because of the wind.
|This little fellow sat patiently |
for his photo to be taken.
|It wasn't till I looked at this photo that I saw |
the elephant seal on the rock. I was too busy watching
an otter swimming just below that rock.
|Kelp or mermaids on the beach?|
|The water was so green and clear here. |
If only it was warm enough to swim in.
|Diving is permitted at a couple of coves in the reserve. |
I've read that Point Lobos is one of the best places in California
to see underwater nature.
