It’s been a tough season for sea lion pups, and I’ve been seeing more of them beached for rest, sun or recuperation. I spotted this guy near an obviously dead sea lion on my run late this afternoon and feared the worst …
Only to see him rouse himself and head for the water
Wriggling in the sun before he dove in the ocean
Further down the sand I spotted this sleeping beauty under the Hermosa pier, very near where I spotted a resting pup this morning. I hope his mother brings him food soon.
