I guess even sea lions get cabin fever now and then. Give them blue sky and calm seas and you may see them outside of Sea Lion Caves; north of Florence, Oregon, on Highway 101. Just north of the caves there is a pullout; the vantage point for the “most photographed lighthouse on the Oregon Coast”. The lighthouse keeper’s house is a bed and breakfast: Heceta Head Lighthouse
They complain a lot but they like to snuggle.
On the other side of the cliff, closer to the caves, another group of sea lions climb the steep cliff; hugging the side to get to the top.
