Of all the things we do on vacation, going to the beach is my favorite. I love to sit and chat, listen to the waves, bask in the sun, knit and occasionally swim. Sometimes, though, you need a break from the beach and one of the things we did on a beach break was go on a seal watch.
It was fantastic.
We all went, along with Kim and her family and we had the best time. We saw so many seals – a lot more than last year. And they are cute and fun to watch.
They tip their heads back – something called bottling – and actually doze off that way.
And they swim under the water and come back up and when they do they look over at the boat to make sure we are still watching and admiring them.
We saw a lot of males, with their big horse shaped heads.
And many females, too, with their more puppy like faces.
Our captain was great and gave us so much information about seals and how they spend their time. For instance, did you know that female seals are basically pregnant for their entire adult lives?
Yeah. Glad I’m not a seal.
