Bulls on the beach

Adult males are surfing onto the beach, ready to intimidate their fellows and make way among the youngsters.
There are still quite a few adolescents on the beach, as well as juveniles. Yesterday's storm tore up the kelp forest and tossed it onto the beach. Apparently, it makes a comfortable bed.
Some really small ones that may be young of the year, pups born last season, are on the beach, too.

A docent reported that a subadult male had landed on the beach at San Simeon, but I couldn't find him there this morning. Maybe he just stopped for a rest and then moved on.
