A determined elephant seal has repeatedly tried to cross Highway 37, a notoriously busy thoroughfare along San Pablo Bay in northern California. A driver called emergency services after seeing the seal trying to climb over the concrete barrier in the middle of the highway. The California Highway Patrol and Marine Mammal Center experts arrived to deter the over-500 pound seal, driving her back into the bay, but she kept trying to cross again. There is no water on the other side of the highway she is trying to cross. No information, yet, about the final outcome of today's seal-herding.
An interesting update on this story: this 900 lb. lady delivered a pup on Jan. 3rd, a few days after being taken to the Marine Mammal center. It was discovered via ultrasound that she was pregnant. She was then moved to Point Reyes National Seashore to rejoin her colony, whereupon she finally had her pup at Drakes Beach. source
A happy end to what was a puzzling event. It's quite a long swim from Pt. Reyes to Hwy 37 in Napa County.
syzygy: For single or a few placemarks coordinates still fine of course!

syzygy: Yup! Sorry everyone for the attachment issue! Hope will be solved soon! Until links to kmz files stored elsewhere is can be a solution...

RaveyThirteen: So... I just tried to add a .kmz of some new finds and saw that nasty error message. Should I just hold onto it til the space issue is sorted?

typsish: As far as I know, it should be foldable. But check the rules of the company you are flying with. They have the specific requirements mentioned in the luggage section. And if the stroller you have now doesn't fit their requirements, check the article on new

diane9247: I don't know what to do about the "space limit" thing. I got a post ready, then couldn't upload the small file. I am losing eyesight, so not sure I can even post anymore! 😵💫(Pinned unfinished post last night, but it didn't save.)

willi1: GE Imagery Date: Yes, I noticed it too. And I thought it was something of an attitude on my part.

SpiderX22: In regards to this error - on my forum posts/threads -> I can start compiling attached files into one kml collection to slim down attachment numbers
