"Federal employees who returned from the month-long partial government shutdown decided that it was probably not worth the effort to relocate the roughly 90 individuals involved. That’s because some of them were pregnant or newborns, and all of them were opportunistic elephant seals that have taken over what used to be the tourist area of Drakes Beach, Calif."
Last week took a camping trip up to Napa Valley. We stayed at Bothe Napa Valley state park. Our buddy from Morro Bay lives there and works with the fire department. Although he was on call and carrying this huge radio he took us on a great hike. We drove about 20 minutes from St. Helena into the mountains. Then another downhill 30 minute hike to The Devils Punchbowl. A beautiful gorge hidden swimming spot. Started the hike down about 7 at night. Brought the GoPro Camera but it doesn't take pictures very well when there isn't much light. So didn't get many good photos as it was getting dark by the time we got there. I got a few on my phone with the camera on a slow setting. I was swimming with a headlamp. There was enough moonlight and we saw the end of the sunset over the trees for our hike back out.
