KING TIDE & THE LA JOLLA HARBOR SEALS

KING TIDES & THE LA JOLLA HARBOR SEALS – This morning at 8 a.m. a King Tide of 8 feet caused giant waves to crash over the sea wall in La Jolla.  140 Harbor Seals moved far up onto the beach to take shelter & rest.  A Snowy Egret foraged on the beach along with a beautiful Whimbrel.  Seals continued to arrive.  One seal stopped to yawn on her way to a nap.  Pupping season for the Harbor seals is a month away & there are quite a few pregnant seals really needing to rest.  The awesome power of the sea was spectacular.
