These pictures don't really show how BIG these things are! Males grow to 14-16 feet long and weigh in at 3000-5000 pounds, or more.

We like going to see the seals in January because that is when all of them are "home" -- males, females, and babies. It is truly fascinating to watch them. A couple Sundays ago, we took four of our grandchildren and two of their parents to have lunch in Cambria and then to visit the elephant seals.
