Seal Rock State Wayside has large off-shore rock formations which are the habitat of seals, sea lions, sea birds and other marine life. The wayside includes interesting tidepools as well as excellent ocean views and a sandy beach. The sea palms in the foreground are approximately 20 inches in height. They flourish on barnacle-encrusted rocks. To capture this low-angle view it was necessary to sit, uncomfortably, on the barnacles immediately adjacent to the sea palms while waiting for the appropriate wave action to record this view.
