Sunny June Days on the Oregon Coast

I always have to stop to see if the sea lions are out on the rocks.

Two sea lions were being noisy.  I’m pretty sure these are California Sea Lions due to the crest on their heads; which you can see better in the next photo.

If you don’t look carefully, you’ll miss the dark ones.  They blend in with the color of the rocks.
