Wordless Wednesday: Sea Lioness Encounter on the Beach!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants DRE00893924

    

As we were merrily walking on the beach, and older lady with a marine wildlife vest pulled us aside and asked that we move towards higher ground...

 

 

At the shore was a sea lioness making her way up to the beach to sun bathe on the rocks...You can see her progress which took 5 minutes shortened to two minutes in this video.

 

 

We moved and watched a pregnant mama sea lion (unlike the seals), they have flippers which help them navigate. The marine wildlife person explained that sea lions spend half their lives on shore.  

 

 

She also explained that this lioness will be delivering any day now!   She will immediately teach her pups to swim and fish. By the time we returned, she was still sleeping on the rocks,

 

 

We learned that there are watchers who report to the volunteers who live nearby, to come and make sure our wild creatures are protected.  In the video, you will see dogs held back until she gets to safety and arrives to her favorite rock.

 

 

This is a moment we will cherish all our lives.  We are so appreciative that the marine wildlife people are in tune with what is happening on our coast.  This is one of the many reasons we love living here!

 

Wishing everyone a delightful Wednesday!

That is pretty cool. One of my great memories of San Francisco is seeing them all just sunbathing on the docks.

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty Yes, that is a wonderful attraction.  And they are loud.  At the lowest tides, I can walk out towards the reef  a bit where they are hanging out, and clap my hands, and they clap back with their flippers!  It is a delight to know that we can communicate..A

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD Thank you for the feature, and I so appreciate the love and care that our area has for the creatures that live around here.  It is a rare sight, because they are usually hanging out on the buoys in the harbor or in the channel islands.  A

Endre Barath, Jr. We did see them in San Francisco, this was just one, and it was a moving experience for both of us.  In the winter months when the tide are super low, they sit on the coral reefs that appear.  I  like to walk in the water and clap my hands and watch them clap their flippers back...A
