This time of year the elephant seals are giving birth & breeding. Moms with new pups are not off limits according to the Bulls, but this female made it very clear there was to be no hanky panky. Notice the brand new pup in the 2nd photo bottom right corner.

Very funny. I have been so busy! I home school my youngest 3 grandkids 30 hours a week and have just completed a 4 month re-model of my Master bedroom & bathroom. I did a bunch of the work myself and only called in the pros for moving my shower, re-plumbing and moving the electrical. I did the vanity, drywalling, chandelier installment, took down one huge mirror & put up 2 smaller mirrors and painted the walls & ceiling and put in new baseboards. I also had new flooring installed.

You have been and continue to be a VERY BUSY LADY!!!

My wife and I home schooled our girls back in the 80's and 90's from about 2nd/3rd grade thru to high school.... OK OK, my wife did probably 90% of the schooling work. The girls then went thru college and did very well there also.

But holy cow you also remodeling your home! Now THAT is a major job! I bet it looks fantastic!!

There is a grove of eucalyptus trees that is a stopping spot for them south of Monterey. Lots of people walk through the grove to see them each year. It is sooooo cool!

I am VERY JEALOUS!!!! Any chance you can send one hive of them to northern Indiana where I live???? <smyle>

they are remarkable.
Beautiful photos
Only once seen swarms and that was several years ago on dry grassland and they were everywhere - as in covering everything.
Hardly see any these days which is sad.

Home Depot has been the only place I have really been to besides the grocery store. I was able to order new drawers & doors + hardware there and then build my vanity. Quite a project but very happy with the outcome.

I used to go out to see them when I was stationed at Fort Ord in the 1980's. Good to see they still come.

There's some work in all that
I like it
Well done and certainly something to have a sense of achievement from.

Thank you. Pretty sure I added a few new words to the English language while building the vanity & hanging those frameless mirrors. :lol:

My bedroom also got new flooring & I painted, put in new baseboards & put down the area rug. Now I am replacing the handles & locks on 3 sets of sliding glass doors. Always something to do......

I have done tiling both floors & my kitchen backsplash, built my fireplace mantle, & helped both my son & daughter tear down & rebuild their first homes. I can do most everything but I did hire an electrician to move the wiring for my new light fixtures. I like being hands on in my home.... it gives me a lot of satisfaction & I save some money, too.
