We see lots of animals and boats go by but only a few stop for a while.
The sea lions have been growling recently, not sure why. This one circumnavigated our little island a few times and has become less shy.
The whale population has certainly increased. At any time we can see four to eight blows on the water. Doesn’t mean I can catch them on camera but I know they are out there. The sure way to see a whale leap out of the water is to put your camera down.
Even the Coast Guard only passed by. The light was automated in 1984 when the last crew left, after signing a wall in the basement.
And today, Tim ventured out and kayaked by. I’m too chicken. The whales and sea lions are huge and landing isn’t easy. I’m happy to remain behind on the little rock.
