I have seen sea lions in a lot of places, I never get tired of them. Also there were babies! So cute! This was exactly the kind of thing I wanted to see. The rules are you are suppose to keep a reasonable distance from the animals and no touching. No matter how tempting it is to rub their bellies.
A group were enjoying the shade under an old boat on shore.
The sea lions don’t pay attention to people, they just went about their business as we walked through them down the beach. Occasionally one will glance over at the group but even with the squealing of delight (that would be me, I can’t help it they are so adorable) they don’t seem to care. I guess they are the cool kids and I’m still one of the geeks.
