Scribbles from North Shore Trail: Billowy blustery secrets

Heard something the other day I don't recall hearing before.  The day was pretty windy along North Shore Trail and some hikers were finding it a little too cold and blustery for their tastes.  I did a double take ... negative "waves" along the crystal clear "environs" of Point Lobos?  Almost lost my hat with that move.  But it allowed me to  share a couple secrets another docent, Paul Reps, had just shared at Whalers Cove: the rough seas had led many of our ocean friends to the calm of the Cove, and big waves make for some awe inspiring moments.  All of which were on dramatic display barely a few yards away; without even using the scope Paul had to hand for even closer views!
 

 

When these hikers reached the Cove I'm sure they found "up-close" views of otters and their pups, along with newborn harbor seals, their umbilical cords shining in the sun and covering the birthing beaches. The cuteness factor of seal pups learning to swim (by hitching a ride on mom's back!), nursing, baying for mom, and just "laying about" is off the scale.  And there is always the chance for the miracle of birth right before our eyes. It can't hurt to circle April each year as a reminder to visit Whalers Cove, not for tax purposes (though a good idea), but for harbor seal births, and all the other treasures of Whalers Cove.


The big waves were a whole 'nother story. The wind driven waves made for amazing sights all over Point Lobos.  Just one example: the exposed granite at the northwest edge of Big Dome.  The continual crashing waves create a sound and explosion of water that is breath-taking. Big Dome held its own today, but time is not on its side.  The same goes for Moss Cove, the Pinnacle, Seal Lion rocks, Weston Beach, Bird Island, and all points in between.  All in all, a good reminder to "get outside myself" and see the bigger picture all around us.
