Our 1st stop on Hwy 101 was actually in the wrong direction! We had to go about 10 miles North of Florence, OR to get to the Sea Lion Caves. “Chuck – We have to go – but is it going to smell?” And so, before buying our tickets, we asked…
As it turns out the sea lions started arriving 4 days before our visit so we were told the smell wasn’t too bad! They come to escape from the winter storms and in the spring there’s an estimated 500 harbouring in the cave. When we visited there were about 150 sea lions – the sound was deafening – and the stench… Ewwww!
But – what a sight!
I’m glad we stopped, paid the $13/person entry fee – but we won’t be back in the spring!
