Danger - Sea Lions on Dock

With yesterdays post, some of you wondered how the people shared the docks with the sea lions. I have no answer. I wonder too. These critters are everywhere on the docks. I've been there a few times and have never seen what happens when people need to get to their boats. I watched someone with a camera walk down the ramp to get closer for a shot and one of the sea lions took off after him. Needless to say the man quickly headed back up the ramp.

  2. WOW !!! They are not kidding when they say 'Sea Lions On Dock' !

    Very cool photos !!

    Are they there all year, or just at certain times??

  3. Wow! Amazing view. Does it happen often? And I wonder how the owners of boats can get to them. Sea lions look quite stubborn ;)

  4. I wonder if they don't slide on into the boats sometimes :)

  5. That's an interesting thought by Kerri. That can be a costly residence to maintain.
    I hope you can get to Bodie sometime. I found it quite fascinating. 10 miles of bumpy, gravel road but well worth it to my way of thinking.

  6. oh my goodness!
