In april of 2013 i had a dream come true when i was able to see an Elephant Seal up close!
He was on the beach at Grassy Point for two or three days.
You can see the fotos & videos of him here.

One day, taking Otto for a walk on the beach in front of Niner territory, i noticed what looks like a small cave in the cliff face with poopshots all down one side.
Was this someone*s Nest?
i wonder who it was?

This Eagle was watching me watching them in the Tree across the road from me.
So, likely one of the Niner pair.
