    ... the seals basking in the beach and practicing fighting in the sea, were males. The females were elsewhere (Don't blame them!) when they are all together, one males elephant seal can have a harem of up to 50 females - but greedy if you ask me! Anyway, after feeling like David Attenborough and soaking up the nature, we jumped back in the car and headed straight to Morro Bay.

    ... staying as long as possible the next morning as the drive to L.A was only a couple of hours. It was agreed that hiring a speed boat was the plan. Having the bikes was cool as there was no worry about having a drink, although the other challenge was we had to have them back before dark as they had no lights! As soon as the sun went down and we finished pudding we did the ride back down the pier and back to the hotel. I would say we just made it, although we did stop and ...

    ... Freeway' thing, we still don't know if bikes are allowed but it's the only way we can go - every now & then it'll say end of Freeway then Freeway starts - really weird as it's all the same road. Then we get to the turnoff for Gaviotta Beach so we do, but it's just a beach with camping no coast road so back up again, on for many more miles with a stop for some of yesterday's fudge - never any toilets in the lay-bys so behind a tree with ...
