Seal Sliding Off Rock Video


Today we visited the Children's Pool Beach in La Jolla, California. We heard about a lot of seals taking over the beach. They are trying to decide what to do about them to run them away. They were even talking about opening the beach up to dogs to scare the seals away. They will decide what to do in ten days, according to the San Diego news stations. We decided we better hurry and see them before they run them off. I guess the people here are just so use to seeing seals it's no big deal to them, but it is still very exciting to us. :-)

La Jolla means "The Jewel," in Spanish, and it is a jewel. The streets are all lined with palm trees and the homes and yards are outstanding. I am adding pictures to show you the area and even one video of a seal sliding off a rock. Videos are VERY slow loading, so please be patient. More later from California.
