To end the trip we went back to the coast to spot some elephant seals that bask in the sun there – the males are massive with protrusions over their nose which aren't the prettiest (like you see on TV). The females are quite cute though. The bulls are apparently 14 to 16 ft long and the heaviest weigh about 5400 lbs, cows are approximately half the size.

Today was sunny and breezy along the coast so we needed to pull out our jackets and jeans. Tonight walking around Carmel, we really found it quite cool (in the 50s) compared to our recent Palm Springs 100s.
