last school field trip of the semester...

Parkfield (pop.18) and Montana de Oro are not new to my field trip assortment, but this year I put them together and teamed up with my Rock Buddy and his class to make the excursion. On the day out I was annoyed by not being able to photograph the bend in the bridge well enough to see the right-lateral motion on the San Andreas Fault. Then, when I looked at my photos, I found this one and proved myself wrong...


Later on that day, right before we headed home, sea lions were spotted just off the coast! I was pretty excited, but there's just not enough zoom on this camera to capture them clearly. They are the shiny things on the rock. The shiny things in the water are seaweed type stuff.

Okay... I don't see any sea lions. Are you pulling my leg?
Just kidding!
Not a bad place for a field trip :)

It was a gorgeous day for a trip! I wished the sea lions would come closer, since they still just look like rocks to me... but I saw them move out there!!!

There is a place in Morro Bay right near the shops where they come and beg for food. Of course the seagulls are stiff competition for them. And I absolutely love Montana De Oro. Darn, now I want to take a beach trip!

How many of them are there in the photo? Do I see five?
