Surfing the Del Norte, California Coastline.
Near the wreck of the USS Milwaukee (north peninsula of Humboldt Bay) , this Harbor Seal Pup was pushed onto the beach by its mother. While the adult female fishes in the Pacific waters outside of the breaking surf, the young pup stays on the sand just beyond the reach of the incoming waves.
Trinidad may be one of the smallest cities in California however, visitors – don’t be fooled. This is a great place to visit when driving along US Highway 101 during the spring and summer months. Memorial Lighthouse is in the foreground; in the distance we see Trinidad Harbor, fishing boats, Trinidad Head, and a glimpse of the pier. Trinidad has been one of the best locations to sport fish for Ocean King and Silver Salmon for years!
