While strolling down the pier we heard some sea lions talking. Do sea lions talk? I need to have Sam look that up. We look over the railing and saw about 5 or 6 of them laying on a platform under the pier. It was really cool. Sorry for the low picture quality as it was right at dusk.
Today, in a effort to check out a bit more of my surrounding, I headed southwest toward the mountains. I wanted to check out a county park that sounded interesting. The drive was amazing. The trees were hanging over the road and at some points I couldn't even see the sky. Awesome. I found the park, which was closed for winter or something, but I didn't mind because the pretty drive had been so worth it. It reminded me a bit of Costa Rica, so lush and green. Maybe I am just used to the arid mountain desert in which we live. I headed back down the mountain, got a late lunch and read some more. I adapt easily, for sure.
Here's to day 6!
