Wendy and I are on a quick trip up the Central Coast–not really a geocaching trip–but we did pick up 5 today.
The first stop was at Arroyo Paredon outside of Carpenteria. I’ve tried this one before, without luck. Today, it was a quick find. The photo above is opposite the cache, looking out toward the Channel Islands. The view of the islands was the best I have seen in years.
We made a quick stop in Buellton and I got another find of a previously DNFed cache–Ranch & Country Rest Stop. Tried it twice before and walked right to it today.
Another previously DNF cache–In Harmony–moved into the found column today. I guess today was just a good one for previous DNFs.
We stopped at the location of Monarch’s Rest. It’s the largest winter home of the Monarch butterflies.
We finished the day with a visit to the Piedras Blancas rookery of the Northern Elephant Seal, Mirounga angustirostris. It’s quite a sight. This was a good time for a visit. The females are giving birth and we saw newly born seals for the first time.

Today was a great adventure. I sure beats being stuck somewhere in the snow.
