It was a new experience, we travelled from place to place, and looked for opportunities to take pictures that matched some predetermined guidelines. We started out by the castle, then went down to the pier. We also visited the Vallemar Railroad Station, Don Gaspar de Portola Statue, and the Sanchez Adobe Historic site. At the pier, the wind was 5-18mph, and it was about 58F. The gulls and crows we able to hover in the wind. I was able to snap several pictures of birds that were either very close, or just overhead, while they floated there.
