Elkhorn Slough Nature Reserve

"A clam THIS BIG got away, honest!"

"I'm the cutest looking harbor seal around here!"

"I'm just sitting here minding my own business."

For those who observed Halloween, I hope you have recovered from your sugar rush. I have never been much for Halloween even as a kids so it's just another day to me. Call me weird!

If you have been following my posts for the few weeks, I have completed postings of my Seoul trip and now it's back to reality. Here are some photos I took recently at Elkhorn Slough. This nature reserve is about 2 hours drive south of San Francisco and hosts hundreds of species of plants and animals. It was my first time here and the sea otters literally swim right up to your boat if you are very quiet.

Nine friends and I rented a pontoon boat and its captain to take us around the slough for a 2-hour photographic tour of the wetlands and wildlife. The captain said we should come back in April to see some sea otter pups.

What adorable photos you captured there i love that first shot, couldn't get any better then that. No i have not been a big fan of Halloween either, when the kids were little we seem too, but i do miss seeing the little ones all dressed up in there cute little outfits. We don't get treaters here .
You certainly did your money's worth on taking the tour.

I like these photos and your creative captions. That boat-sharing trip sounds like a great idea.

Yes, that's a car wash photo that I used to illustrate "light at the end of the tunnel."

I have thoroughly enjoyed browsing your recent posts.
