Just off the Pacific Coast Highway, near San Simeon (about a 1 hour drive north of San Luis Obispo), you get to see some magnificent creatures.
They are the ELEPHANT SEALS.
And they have a distinctive call :)
Which can be quite loud.
Male elephant seals can grow to be 20 feet long and weigh up to 8,800 lbs.
They can hold their breath for up to 100 minutes.
And they sure look cute when flipping sand on themselves :)
