Amazing! Pretty much only around this large sandy pool on the lee side of a stack. Saw at least 30, probably more, all of them relatively small like this one.

Description

The seahare was long and chubby. It was making its way through the small pool I found it in. It moved slowly and on occasion would poke its' head out of the water.
