Bullard Beach SP is a really good location to use as a base. The campground itself is really nice and it’s handy to so many interesting places. Soon after I arrived I took a drive up to the Charleston area, to Sunset Beach SP and Simpson’s Reef. Photographing wildlife is always a draw for me and I spent about 3 hours watching the sea lions (both California and Stellar) and seals (harbor seals and Northern Elephant
seals). The N.E. seals were pretty lethargic, laying on the beach and occasionally using their flippers to toss sand on themselves. I never did get to see one in the water but the others were having a great time of it.
This morning there were some clouds with sunlight breaking through so I spent some time photographing some of the sea stacks. I haven’t used ND filters much and decided it would be good to play around with them. Very interesting results I think.
