Seals And Other Stuff

I went for a seal cruise in my boat the other day. I went out the main channel along the rocks at the jetties. I was surprised to see only two seals! Usually when I go out there, I see hundreds of seals lounging all over the rocks and swimming around in the water. I wonder where they all are? Are they breeding?

Here's a huge Horsehead 
Seal steaming past my boat-


This was the only seal I spotted on the rocks-


Upon closer inspection, I learned the poor little bugger had only one eye-


Several Cormorants roosting on the green light oblivious to the blaring fog horn-


A lot of birds were feeding in amongst the rocks including this Ruddy Turnstone-


Nice day today. It felt like Spring as the temperature made it to above 50 degrees. I'm getting tired of this balmy winter. I wish it would snow a few times. At any rate, these scallopers were enjoying the nice warm day today.

How do you know he wasn't just winking at you?

His eye was all scarred over.
