Meet more friends

Sumer, they say, is  the time to meet your neighbors.
Last Tuesday I ran into my eagle neighbors, as I showed on the blog.

Sunday the weather was great,
the water so calm that it was like glass.

So Kayaking I went, trying ot find our eagles again. 

Unfortunately, I could see them on a rock at the end of Ft Abercrombie,
at the entrance to Monashka bay.
So I decided to  see what else I could see at Spruce Cape.

And what I found was something like this. A seal arched upon a rock.
It happened so quick that I didn't take a pic.
So I hope you don't mind if I show 2 similar pics form a cloudy day.

Once it saw me, that seal dove right into the water.

Anyway, this Sunday the same thing happened.
And it came over to check me out.
For about 10 minutes it swam around me and stared.

Finally it went under. And I went on to another group of rocks.

But as I paddled back towards the beach,
I found 2 seals, apperantly taking a nap while swimming in the water.

 One yawned.

Then suddenly seemed to wake and looked at me.

It turned around and the other one opened it's eyes and looked at me too.

One went behind a rock.
The other stayed behind and looked at me some more.

Till it decided it was time to go under the water and swim among the kelp.

And I decided it was time to head for home.

But not before seeing my neighbor eagle return
and make a dive for some food.....

... only to fly off empty-handed.

Well that's a typical day in Kodiak !
Hope you had a good day too.
