We went critter spotting and saw tons of sea otters. They are so much fun to watch: they dive down to get a clam or urchin, lay on their backs at the surface, and smack the snack against their favorite rock to open it.
We finished the experience with a late lunch on the river bank at the River Inn. Big Sur is a must-see if you're driving the Cali coastline!
