I was walking along the beach today, looking for various types of crustaceans for my biology lab assignment, and I came across a seal just hanging out on the shoreline in the sun. I was able to get pretty close before it woke up and noticed me, then it just hobbled into the water. It floated about 15 feet in the water from the shoreline and just looked at me for a little while then swam off. I've lived here my entire life and never came across any seals. Has anybody else in the area seen them on the beach or out in the water? Pretty cool experience.
