I stopped counting at twelve....arf!


have you ever heard a seal bark? They seriously bark, loudly.... and sound so travels on the water. As i got out of my jeep yesterday and approached the landing for the foot ferry you could hear a couple of seals chatting with eachother over near the shipyard. Ahhh, makes me happy, the dorky nature girl that i am! Anyway, as usual i sat outside on the ferry (worth the freeze!) and as we traveled you could see seals, many seals. Playing in the water, sunning themselves on buoys, etc. well i stopped counting at 12 and there were a ton more of them! Of course the camera i had with me would not bring them close enough to truly identify.. will try with the other camera today.

Very cool!

We used to go up to York Beach every December, but hadn't done that in quite a few years... so of course we had to stop off on the way home from Kennebunk... I love Nubble light! The wind was something FIERCE there that day though - bbrr!

Nice! You won a contest!

I love pictures of seals. Something about their heads peeking out of the water...

Please do post more pictures of them if you can!

When we went on a day cruise to see some glaciers in Alaska, there were a ton of seals and otters. They were soooo much fun to watch. Can't help but smile when those critters are around.
