New Year's Eve Part I

New Year's Eve started out with a wonderful breakfast at Jeannine's with Dave, Dayna and her parents, who were in town for a few days. Even though I tried, and really wanted to get something different, I went with my same breakfast from the last time we went there, did Brett, so it's all good. :)

We came back and hung out at the house for a bit, and then decided to go check out the seals in Carpenteria. Brett's Mom had mentioned these to me when we were in Vegas, and so we went out to see if we could find the right spot.

If you recall from our trip to NY, I was quite the Squirrel Whisperer....well, turns out that Brett is the Seal Whisperer...or Seal Barker. The seals were all being quite peaceful, just laying around on the beach, and then Brett decided to call out to the them. I'm sad that I didn't have the camera ready, because they all turned towards us at once, and it was hysterical. They ended up looking at all of us for a good 5 minutes, until a few of them just all of the sudden, turned and started out towards the water. It was so funny how they waddled on the sand, but we were all happy that we got to see them moving around.

On the way home, we stopped by the (extremely busy) grocery store to grab a few things for the New Year's Eve that we had in store at Brett's place. More pics to come in NYE Part II. :)

On one of your trips to SB you need to take a day trip to Hearst Castle. For a shutterbug, lots of stuff to photograph.
