On the coast at Santa Barbara, we spent some time sea-watching. This Surfbird was one of my favourite birds of the trip. I wish I'd been able to get a sharper photo, specially with the dramatic waves behind!
We took a boat trip over to Santa Cruz Island, specifically to see Island Scrub Jay. This one proved to be very photogenic.
This photo of the iconic Bald Eagle was taken at Lopez Lake.
We got up early to drive up to Morro Bay, the main target here was to see Sea Otters. I'll tell more about that in the next installment.
