Happy Birthday To Holly; Seals That Never Forget;”I Do, He Does”; Slumming At Pebble Beach

We left at 9:00 and headed north. After gassing up (dieseling up?), we made our first stop at a small beach favoured by Elephant Seals. They love each others’ company, and despite their size, they are kind of cute:

It is a beautiful coastline:

After a Happy Birthday call to Holly, we continued on to Pebble Beach, opting to pay $10.00 to drive the 17-mile loop (definitely worth it). For those unfamiliar with it, Pebble Beach is an enclave of very wealthy people, built around 3 PGA-level golf courses, the two most famous being Spyglass Hill and Pebble Beach itself. Having been a golf fan for many years, I have always wanted to see the Pebble Beach course, so this was a great opportunity. It is a lovely drive:

Apparently I’m going to have to wash the roof:

The following photos are for Mickie; at one stop, we ran across a beach wedding (reminded us of Holly’s wedding):

Another Bucket List item checked off.

Due to our detours, we arrived at the Santa Cruz KOA at just after 6:00, where we will stay for 2 nights.
