    I have only seen these prehistoric beasts once before during their mating time in winter. I was on a cliff hundreds of feet above them. This time I was only about six feet above them seaparated by a fence. Their blobs of bodies hide powerful muscles. They ...

Next we reached Carmel and from here onwards the scenery was spectacular, especially in the Big Sur. The weather also improved greatly and it made for a really enjoyable drive.
