Description

1000 hours: While walking north on the South Shore Trail north of where you turn into the Piney Woods parking area, in the small cove just south of Sea Lion Point, I spotted an adult sea potter hauled out of a rock, laying within less than five (5) feet of an adult harbour seal. Because sea otters tend not to haul out during the daytime in this area, I was a bit concerned, so I watched it for awhile, finally concluding that it was OK, just chilling out. There appeared to be no conflict at all between the much larger harbor seal and the adult sea otter.
