On one of this week's kayak trip, we heard a lot of noise
as we turned a corner around an island near the channel...
This is what we found:
sea lions in a fight over control of the land.
Since they were pre-occupied,
we felt safe in getting a little closer.
Finally there is a winner
and he is "King of the Island"!
PS These pics were taken with a point-and-shoot digital camera
and were then cropped.
We are not so stupid as to get as close to the fight as these look!
