There is a great spot in La Jolla where the Harbor seals take over
the beach in the winter. There is a roped
off section of the small cove called "Childrens' Pool" that allows the seals to bask with their
young. You can get very close to them and watch their antics.
Which, incidentally is why this picture is named what it is.
These guys really know how to relax, and when they are not relaxing,
they are total clowns. Just like my Basset.
