I do not think this is an elephant seal. They never have spots on their fur. It is probably a harbor (common) seal.

Yes, you are absolutely correct. She is a Harbor Seal. I just went up to Cambria again and took many more pictures. Some quite amazing.

I did confirm that she is a Harbor Seal and not an Elephant Seal. The Elephant Seals were farther up the coast.

I will be changing the title on this post. Again, thanks for the information. I always welcome help when I get something wrong. :)

I broke my phone getting this picture. Worked my way out onto the rocks to get closer, got the picture, then while working my way back, slipped on some mossy wet seaweed and went down hard. My phone was in my pack pocket and broke my fall.

uBreakIfix.com made it like new again! Pretty amazing considering what I handed them!
