Alsea Bay Harbor Seals

Today in the Alsea Bay

Look how sweet those faces are!!  We walked out to the sandbar on the north side of the bay, where we’d seen the harbor seals for the last several weeks.  We were about 30 yards from them with a zoom lens. We didn’t want to bother them enough to chase them back in the water. They didn’t seem too concerned but they were watching us. A dog walker could not get as close as we were. The seals got more nervous when they saw the dog approaching. Two young seals got back in the water, swam around and popped up right in front of us, facing us. Then they would dive again and pop up somewhere else, looking right at us.  They looked like they were playing with us.
