pvlsorin, thanks. This photo was taken 1 and 1/2 years ago. This guy swam in from the ocean to take a nap in front of many vacationing tourists and was not a bit shy! David from California

There are also seals in this Bay, but it's impossible to approach them so near! You are so lucky! Cheers, Christian
