We got to Natural Bridges toward sunset, and the Turnstones and Sanderlings were feeding in the surf, seemingly oblivious to nearby people and pets. I've never gotten so close to a Turnstone before, it was really magical. I shot nearly 80 pictures in about 20 minutes.
As the light was fading, we saw five Sea Otters in the bay, one of which was quite close. It had a pale golden head, and was using a rock to crack shellfish.
