Seals on the Beach

From late February until the end of April, we are on the look out for seals resting on the beach.

We are lucky enough to see 1 or 2 each year!

It was cold and windy this morning, and I was tempted to pass on our regular beach walk.  Thankfully, we bundled up and headed out.

This seal was one of the smallest we have ever seen.  And from a distance, it looked like a piece of driftwood or jetty rock.

A volunteer from The Marine Mammal Stranding Center in Brigantine was on hand to mark the area (the pup was snoozing in a tire rut) and told us the seal arrived late Saturday and would likely return to the ocean today.

Pictures from a safe distance (zooming in with my phone) so we didn’t disturb the seal’s nap!
