Very funny. I have been so busy! I home school my youngest 3 grandkids 30 hours a week and have just completed a 4 month re-model of my Master bedroom & bathroom. I did a bunch of the work myself and only called in the pros for moving my shower, re-plumbing and moving the electrical. I did the vanity, drywalling, chandelier installment, took down one huge mirror & put up 2 smaller mirrors and painted the walls & ceiling and put in new baseboards. I also had new flooring installed.

You are officially a MACHINE!!!! I am totally impressed...

Richard, I spent about an hour watching these bears....I took a lot of pictures but many of them had their heads facing away or paws blocking them. So I took about 280 shots & kept 30.

Amazing. Thanks for posting Maureen. Never see these here where I am.
The baby perched up on parent so typically youthfulness :-)

The second one is cute. I trust so and not aggression.

Do they smell?

Richard, yes they do have a bit of an odor but God made sure they lived on the beach where wind & water make it quite tolerable.  :p

I might add that they really blend in with their environment.....you have to look closely along the rocks to distinguish some of the seals.
