So if you know me, you know I hate to exercise.
Like hate it.
But I'll tell you what, the weather here in Carp is nothing short
So I put on my sneakers and headed out.
You see, a short walk on a certain beautiful trail will lead you here-
the Carpinteria Seal Rookery.
I've been wanting to go have a looky since December, when
they close the beach and the seals start having their pups:)
So today? I said Dorie-
JUST DO IT!!
I started my walk here. I mean come on!
Is that just breathtaking or what??
While on my walk with me myself and I,
I did some thinking...
Like why? why? why? didn't I move here sooner??
Like yeeears ago???
On the trail I came upon these adorable ladies
who were painting the beautiful scene in front of them.
Oh man I wish I could paint....
Then I got to the Rookery.
I know those look like rocks to you, but trust me
they're harbor seals. And they are adorable!
I sent this selfie to the hubby to prove that I went, and more
importantly to make him super jealous:)
As of Monday when I went, the pup count was up to 18 I think.
There's a chance I stayed there longer than most, because I was
asked if I wanted to be a volunteer seal watcher.
They are kinda like the police of the place. They keep watch for new pups
and most importantly, make sure that NO ONE or NOTHING
disturbs the seals.
Like seriously, they will cut a b**ch if you dare go near them!!
On my way back I came upon this adorableness...
I'm not sure if the owner was joking but he said I could have it for 20 bucks.
I almost took him up on it...
but politely declined because... well..
I got my own adorableness:)
