The coastline changes from beach to rocks and cliffs along this two or three mile stretch. At the southern tip of town, the Bluffs overlook the ocean. When I moved here in the summer, I'd hear seals every now and then. I'd go look over the cliff, trying to spot the little dude...I never had any luck.
However, that has changed. From December to May/June, harbor seals come to the Seal Sanctuary to give birth to their pups. I've been to the lookout point a few times now. I think I'm going to start volunteering so I can sit there for two hours a week checking out the seals.
Here, a view of the Bluffs...
As you walk towards the seal sanctuary....a view...
This old tree overhangs the bluffs.
I love how it looks.
Here we have the seals...looking a lot like rocks!
Every once in a while, one of them will flap its front,
This little guy was born that morning. He was trying
get back in and the tide was trying to wash him out! Yipe!
His mamma was out catching fish.
Ehn...I think I can make it...phew, this is hard!!
Pant, pant....sheesh!! Just a little more!
He finally made it to the rocks and lodged himself
in there so the waves couldn't take him out to sea.
Lalala...I see you...
The good life...
This guy decided that he wanted
to come in and warm up a bit.
Here we have a mamma and her little one...
Hey...watcha lookin' at?
I am ignoring you...hmmph...
Yaaaaaawn.....such a hard life...
Ok, girls, time for sit-ups...and up...
You lookin' at me?? Aren't I cute?

A different view...she's keeping her eye on me.
Here, we have another mamma and her baby.
The birds hanging out could possibly indicate
that another seal is about to give birth, or they
may just be hanging out.
Remember the little guy that had just been born? I
think this might be him a few days later...the coloring
looks the same to me. Anyways, the news is that he made it!
and here he is, just stretching out...
