|Submarines on the Central Coast?|
Are there submarines landing on our central coast?No, what you see is a monster Elephant seal taking in a bit of sun. The Elephant seals located just north of Cambria are a fascinating bunch to watch all year round. Their front room facing the beautiful Pacific is a gorgeous area to visit.
Which brings me to a great event coming up in September which supports the Friends of the Elephant Seals and many services they provide to our visitors:
A Grand Ole Soupabration (click link to download event flyer)
