The images below were captured a few weeks ago on the Oregon Coast, south of the town of Yachats. As we looked over the edge of the viewpoint, we noticed a seal rookery; babies and frisky mating activities and all. It was such a gorgeous day. I was jealous of the seals and their water-bound frolicking. Some leapt from the water, others slept on rocks in sun or shadow. Each were marked or scarred many times from what must have been wildlife tracking, scientific study, or battles. They were all fat and blubbery, unafraid of the massive waves, unfettered in the aquatic acrobatics. At the right times of year one can see whales migrating not far off of the shoreline. For reals.
