If we only had smellevision--a breathtaking experience

Elephant seals in Ano Nuevo SP. No, they're not sick, they are molting. And they stink to high heaven--imagine a huge pile of dead fish and dog poo.
Funny story about the lighthouse, it was basically abandoned in 1948, because the island was overrun by thousands of California sea lions. They broke down doors, overran the gardens, and were generally driving the light keepers insane. If you click on the picture, you can see a couple hundred chilling out on the beach.
