Drakes Beach – Bull Elephant Seals – Point Reyes National Seashore – California

When we arrived back at Ken Patrick Visitor Center we ate a picnic lunch in the Jeep and then walked out to Drakes beach to see the bull elephant seals up close!

The bulls were sunbathing in the afternoon and didn’t move much. Rangers were putting little orange flags a safe distance around them to keep tourists from getting too close. I was surprised at how close the little orange flags were to the giant 4400-6000 pound animals! We were so close to them!

As close as we wanted to be!

The kiddos also earned Junior Ranger patches.

We spent some time just walking on the beach, looking for sand dollars, and enjoying the salty air.
