I’ve shown his picture before, he came up to say “Hello!” and he talked:
I wanted to take him home, we would have so much fun barking at the t.v. together!
On these stairs the big guy with his arm around the “lady” bullied his way into that spot. He started a few stairs up and by the time I got my camera back out (never put your camera away in the Galapagos) he had squished into that spot. In the process he knocked off the other little guy and when the little guy complained about it the big guy barked at him and shut him up.
But it didn’t stop him from trying to squeeze his way back in:
And eventually displacing the “lady” ….. the whole episode made me laugh!
Oh look all the seats are taken:
There is fencing put up to try and keep them away but the sea lions still find their way up to the walkway. They take over the seats and relax, sleeping in the shade provided and I’m not sure how or if they try to move them. Guess the people just need to stand.
Oh wait here’s a seat:
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.
