Seal watch...

If you go walking on Goat's Rock Beach near sunset trying to spot seals you will find that it is easier than expected - as the seals are all there floating in the surf spotting humans.
They look like cute little ghosts - but we didn't figure out if they were just waiting for us to sod off so that they could get to bed (my theory) or if watching us was a leisure pursuit (the theory that was posted on educational information boards on the bays wildlife):




For watery pictures from all over the world visit the home of Watery Wednesdays and enjoy.
If you're kind enough to leave a comment: I'm still on holiday but will visit your photos when I'm back.

Love this picture, the waves are great and adore the little seal (hope that the right name for it)

Oh what a cute critter and it looks like he's just wallowing there for his own leisure. Love the wave rolling in. Seals are great. Well any wildlife is really.

Oh - how wonderful, to see a seal! Never seen one, so this makes me a little bit envious! :)

What a cut little critter/sea otter or seal? I saw some while in Alaska. I would be driving in the car and right beside me in the water would be one of those playful little guys!

How adorable with the seal in that picture and the waves make it even more dramatic!

Laurieluc said...

it's very cool how you can see them bobbing in the waves! Wow!

Tricia said...

I'm gonna have to go w/ your theory - I can't imagine they'd purposely watch us! Hehehe

Great shot!

Cute little ghosts? Ha, they do kinda look like Casper.

Nell said...

Isn't that cute! Love it.

Judy said...

i love the photo!! the waves are dramatic, but the seal poking its head out adds an unexpected element to it!!

I think they were waiting for you to leave so no human would bear witness to a very secretive and little known phenomenon - when they are alone, seals party like rock stars.

;)

w00t! It's WEDNESDAY!

Must be nice to see them in the surf like that. They're probably tourist looking at all of the humans.

He's a friendly chap, almost as friendly as a Manx one. Cute.
