Sea Otter Enhydra lutris

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.

Description

1100 hours: An adult gray whale mom, with its calf in tow, actually swam into Headland Cove. For a mammal of that size, it seemed a bit cozy. Apparently spooked by something (Orcas=?) Mom and calf stayed for awhile, then slowly eased out of the Cove, heading north staying pretty close to shore.

Description

1530 hours. Just north of Weston Beach, about 100 yards off-shore, spotted two adult gray whales with two young calves. Initially I thought something was wrong, because the calves were churning up the water, but it turned out that the calves simply seemed to be be playing as they headed north.
