We have seen the Newport Sea Lions before,
I just don't recall seeing SO MANY!
Did you know that all the Sea Lions in Newport are males?!?
The females stay in southern California at their breeding grounds and the boys only go down to visit for 4-5 weeks in June-July.
The male Sea Lions like it up north, where the Herring and Salmon are abundant.
What do you think, Cate?
"Bark Bark BARK!"
A local group just raised $20,000 to fix the docks, so the boys can continue to have a place to lounge in the bay.
What do you think, Tegan?
Ummm, let's go.
Don't worry Tegan the Sea lions aren't so scary, they sound like grumpy dogs and look like big blubber covered grumpy dogs! Love and Licks from your furiend Frank XxxxxxxxXReplyDelete
I think I would have been scared at seeing so many lions!ReplyDelete
We're with Tegan. We'd bark and tell them off.....at a safe distance.ReplyDelete
Wow that is a lot of sea lions. Tegan, we see you are outnumbered, so think it is ok to be a little scared.ReplyDelete
Last time we were in an Francisco the sea lions were piled up on top of one another - we had never seen that many beforeReplyDelete
