Photographer's Note

Seals enjoying the surf at the Farallon Islands National Wildlife Refuge.
These islands are in the Pacific Ocean about 30 miles west of San Francisco. Multiple islands totalling 217 acres are home to perhaps the largest bird colony in the lower 48 states.

It took an all-day boat trip to visit the islands and look for whales. We are not allowed to go on land, but the views from the boat were great, and were more visually interesting than the whales we saw.

Great trip, and highly recommended if you ever make it to San Francsico.
