Apparently, the South American version is larger, so I'm looking forward to seeing them in Argentina. The guy from Friends of the Elephant Seals is the first person I've run into up here who knows where my little town of Puerto Lopez is. He even asked if the Mandala was still there! Here are some pix and videos for your enjoyment!
This guy was adamant about not being ignored. So, I obliged him.
In the San Simeon/Cambria area, they really like their scarecrows. This was one of my favorite displays.
Soon afterward, the rains came. It was still pretty, but we weren't going to do much stopping. Even on Santa Claus Lane! In our defense, he apparently stayed inside, too!
And, I couldn't sing the song. When we crossed Ventura Highway, there was no sunshine.
The day began with the elephant seals and ended with dinner with a long-time, very dear friend and her family who I just met face-to-face for the first time this evening! An excellent day, even if it did rain on my parade!! LOL!
