Friday Photo: A Sandbox Salute To The Carpinteria Seal Sanctuary

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants

www.napaconsultants.com

The picture of the sculpture above is situated on Linden Street which ends at the beach.  It commemorates Carpinteria's Seal Preserve Sanctuary.  If you walk to the left, you will run into the area known as the seal rookery.

 

The beach is closed to the public to protect the seal rookery/birthing habitat from anyone who may frighten them.  Volunteers keep a 24 hour vigil from the cliffs above and areas below. However, you can view their activity from the bluffs above the seal preserve, and watch them sunbathe, take care of their littles one and have fun.   

 

Wishing you a delightful weekend.

Cheers!

If I lived near here I would be visiting the viewing area quite a bit as I love to see wildlife in their natural habitat. Thanks for sharing!

Very cool guys. At first I thought I was looking at couple of real seals although the smaller one would've had a hard time breathing if that were true

Cute seal.. I bet the little ones like to play on it!  At least they will have something to do instead of bothering the real seals.  Have a great weekend!

Very cool, this would be a fun place to visit.  I like seeing the seals when I am in California, although I am not there very often.

What beautiful sand art Ron and Alexandra Seigel  Fabulous  place for Seals to be protected  .. Such fun animals t watch  .. They used to have  them many many many tears ago in Alantc City New Jersey  at the Piers  . You could buy fish to feed them ..   You do not see them on the East Coast like that anymore

Ron and Alexandra Seigel , it's great to hear the seals' habitat is protected and that there are such dedicated voluteers who will stay up all night to protect them.  What fun to watch from the bluffs!
