Skimming over beach.
Group of four, lunge feeding near shorebreak. Harbor seal only slightly concerned.

The semi-clear/ blue plasticky looking object. They wash up by the dozens. Ignore the kelp/sea weed.
We saw well over a dozen on a pelagic cruise with Sanctuary Cruises. Anchovies are bring them close to shore.
Mother and calf, in about 15' of water. Mother was lunge feeding, calf was playing.
