LOBSTER SEASON OPENS IN LA JOLLA & FROM THE SHORE I OBSERVE PELICANS RIDING ON THE BOATS AND SEA LIONS WAITING FOR A BREAKFAST BAIT HANDOUT AS THE LOBSTER TRAPS ARE EMPTIED. CALIFORNIA SPINY LOBSTERS ARE NOT “TRUE” LOBSTERS AS THEY HAVE NO CLAWS. One time a bunch of lobster traps washed up into La Jolla Cove after a storm & the lifeguards emptied the traps of all the lobsters, put them into buckets and returned them out to the marine reserve park where fishing is illegal. It was wonderful to see that these creatures had a second chance at life.
SEA LIONS – A HANDMADE BOOK USING MY PHOTOS & EDUCATIONAL NOTES – This handmade book completes a series of books, which I made to use my photos of our local sea lions to illustrate educational information.
It’s a Sea Lion Saltwater Spa (with a kiddie pool for the sea lion pups!) As the tide comes in, the sea lions are doused with a refreshing spray of sea water & the sea lion pups buoyantly float on the crashing wave! Just another wonderful time with the sea lions at La Jolla Cove!
