San Luis Pier

Saturday in SLO dawned clear and warm so off to the beach at Avila! Lots of people here on holidays so the people watching was fantastic but came nowhere near to the antics of the animal residents of the bay.

As the fishing boats came in for the day the pelicans would hang around the fish cleaning station hoping to get some of the offal for dinner. Several tried to swallow pieces so big it took twenty minutes to get them down. While under the pier on the lower level the sea lions have taken over the wharf as their sleeping quarters. They are out of control here and have taken the lower pier for their own!

Wow the pelicans are awesome! At first I thought they were statues sitting on top of that building...until I looked at the next picture..too cool ! And I must add I am glad the sea lions have somewhere safe to sleep. :-)
