Living on Colvos Passage where there’s always a current, we often see things float by, particularly after a heavy rain. We have seen, and sometimes gone out in the dinghy to retrieve: kayaks, mooring buoys, rafts, a friend’s sailboat, as well as observed, but not retrieved lots of trees, limbs and general “stuff”. Today Cathryn called out, “Bob, look at that weird log floating by!”
Because this is a close-up photo, a close look will reveal that it’s actually a couple of sea lions taking advantage of a nice, calm, sunny day to float by, flippers in the air, relaxing and getting some solar warmth. Let me tell you, at first glance without the aid of binoculars, it was not all that obvious.
We love living on the waters of Puget Sound, as there is always something going on outside the windows!
