Point Reyes (and the gigantic lazy elephant seals)

After our stop in Santa Rosa, we found out that we wouldn't be going to Yosemite as planned due to the rim fire.  So spur of the moment decisions were made and we ended up booking a hotel in San Francisco for the remainder of our vacation.  We still wanted to get some 'outdoorsy' activities in (since we were so looking forward to them in Yosemite!), so instead of driving straight into San Francisco, we took a detour to the Point Reyes National Seashore and it . was . awesome!

We spent an entire day exploring this awesome area.  We went inside the Point Reyes Lighthouse, saw gigantic elephant seals laying along the coast, and went on numerous little hikes on the cliffs high above the ocean.  The entire time we were there, it was so foggy!  But it actually made everything look even cooler.  We definitely scored big time on these last minute detour plans!  Once the afternoon started to fade away, it was time to head on to San Francisco for some city fun!
