California Dreamin', On Such a Winter's Day...

Cue the Mamas and the Papas...

Those are not big rocks you see on the beach above--they're harbor seals at Children's Pool in La Jolla. There is controversy here: some selfish pigs want to "return the beach to the people"--the people who have miles and miles of shoreline to use--and chase away these seals...who breed here and have their babies in the spring. Leave the seals alone!
Blorpety-blorpety-blorp...
This little dude was body surfing and then rolling around in the surf--CUTE!
This one is camera shy: "No paparazzi!!"
The end.P.S. This post is meant to express my gratitude and amazement that I live in such a place; it is NOT meant to rub it in for those folks who live where it's decidedly more winterish. Come visit us and warm up!

Great little story there and wonderful pics. I love the seal that was body surfing, and the shy one. Cute! Yes, leave them alone for cryin' out loud!
