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.
Wow! I these pictures could make a calendar!
Thank you, Sally. It was a perfect day with a clear blue sky. Lynn’s pictures are much better than mine; ask her to show you some time.
What a marvelous day you had for this outing! I really enjoy the birds and otter. Did you get to eat at Phil’s? I love that place and enjoyed the drive several times back in my driving days.

Yes, we did eat at Phil’s. We shared a plate of fish tacos that was intended for one but was more than enough for both of us. We also enjoyed the fish chowder.
Oh my heart!
Your photos are beautiful.
Thank you so much. I love taking photos and it is easy with a good camera and great weather!
Those Sea Lions have taken over the dock! Beautiful pictures
There were some perched on the back of boats, too! Somehow just looking at them makes you smile.

I should say you got some WONDERFUL photos indeed! What a beautiful day to share with your niece — she really lucked out in the auntie department!
Haha! I’ll tell her you said that! Actually I lucked out in the niece department.
Lovely post. Super photos.
First time we visited Cape Town we went down to the harbour at dusk and saw several dark shapes among the moored boats. I thought they were divers working on the boats and only learned they were seals from a local the following morning!
Before we had even left the harbor, I had enjoyed some fabulous sights. It was a delightful trip.
