Yesterday my niece and I enjoyed a delightful tour with Elkhorn Slough Safari. We were given a very interesting journey around the slough, with informative commentary from the naturalist and the captain. If you are ever near Moss Landing, this tour is a couple of hours very well spent. You will see otters, sea lions, blue herons, and all sorts of ducks and birds.
You can kayak if you have strong arms, or take the safari and a long lens. My camera did not have a very long lens but even so, I managed to get a few good shots. Some people in kayaks were able to get closer to the birds and animals, but I think it must have been a tiring journey; one of them asked the safari captain if he could get a tow back to the harbor!
Here are some of my photos to give you a taste of this great day.
