We had a little break in the storm this afternoon so I drove down to La Jolla to see if I could get some shots of the baby seals at the Children's Pool. It was raining when I first arrived, but I waited in the car for about 1/2 an hour and then it cleared up for about 45 minutes before getting dark again. There were lots of seals hauled out on the beach, and several of the young ones - even a couple of little ones playing in the surf with mom.
This one seemed to be having a great time rolling around in the sand.

There were lots of gulls and pelicans out too.
This one was getting a bit too close I think.
Here's one coming in for a landing on the sand. That's the sea wall in the background.
The pelicans seem to like flying in formation. This reminded me of seeing the Navy aircraft flying in front of the downtown skyline 2 weeks ago.
