ELEPHANT SEAL – Yawning & Taking a Nap

ELEPHANT SEAL – So lucky to spend time with 2 elephant seals at the beach in La Jolla this week.  Two juvenile elephant seals showed up for a visit with the California Harbor Seals!  These were weaned seals on their way to Mexico who got tired and stopped for a few days for a nice long rest.  Their puppy-dog eyes and walrus-like whiskers are so charming.  & when they use their flippers to cover themselves with sand and then yawn and yawn yet again, I am completely captivated and smitten!  After I made a video of them and watched it, I could almost hear a music background of Tom Jones song “What’s New Pussycat” whoa, whoa, whoa, I’ve got flowers and hours and hours to spend with you!
