...I hung out with seals!!!!!!!
My husband does his Army PT at this beach by our house ocassionally. He always ends up sending me pictures and talking about the seals that are beached there. I get so jealous, I want the chance to see them dangit! I have a huge heart for animals and I think seals are just one of the cutest sea animals, besides penguins!
Well what do ya know?!
On my first trip to this beach I was graced with seeing Hawaiian Monk Seals! A pregnant mommy and her cub. Little did I know that they are endangered. I feel like every animal is endangered these days?!
They were roped off but you could get super close to them. It was awesome! My friend and I made sure to sit as close as possible, we were so thrilled to see them cuties!
They oddly reminded me of Jax. The only movements they made were to sneeze, itch or shift from one sleep spot to another. A dogs life.
I really wanted to seem them do something! Thus after waiting a couple hours, the baby seal didn't disappoint. He decided to get up close and personal and take a lil swim. He actually looked like he was showing off for the camera and wanted to play!
Besides seeing the seals, I actually really liked this beach. Full of locals, surfers, military. Felt like a Florida East Coast beach...home. It won't be my last visit, that's for sure!
I guess living here isn't too bad sometimes ;)
Next, I'd like to get up close and personal with some sea turtles!!
