All these years driving down 101 I never knew you could drive out to the rock.  Sunday the wind guests were so strong.  They caught a few people off guard.  One minute you are enjoying the view and next, clinging on for life.

No they are not on "The Rock". This is a rock to the left of the three statues. The Rock is behind us. It was too windy to walk all the way out. Yes there were otters, a complete nursery.

great pics, but that's not Morro rock. I am there frequently. Love the otter rafts, the dunes on the beach are great wind breaks while watching the sunset.

That can't be Morro Bay Rock. If those yahoos pictured were up on The Rock, the local authorities would have been after them in a red hot minute. No one is allowed to even touch The Rock. (Plus, I highly doubt those guys with their tennis shoes made it atop that rock. It is 481 feet high.) The otters can be seen easily-----if you park and walk instead of driving out to The Rock. There are "rafts" (groups) of about 35 otters, typically 2-10 per raft.

I guess you've never clambered over the breakwater protecting the mouth of the harbour and estuary.

Did you see any otters? Usually they can be seen inside the harbor entrance fairly close to shore.

Were there any peregrine docents there to show you if any of the falcons were nearby? When I was last there they had a viewing scope trained on one and we were invited to view them and even take photos through the scope, with cellphones of course.

I love your photos. Thank you for posting the before and after of winds. Clever, you.
