This is the place to come if you want to view a happy, lazy, loud colony of sea lions. Along Fisherman's Wharf. Incredible. More pix of the sea lions to come... I promise.
Oh too cool. I've been there and have a few shots but it was dusk when I was there and so the pictures didn't turn out this good. This is in San Francisco, right? I was at Pier 39 in Oregon and there were scads of sea lions there. A really noisy bunch.

@Marion: Yes, this is SF. I didn't know Oregon has a Pier 39, too. What city?
love the framing,they are so well behaved! Are they sleeping?

@tyan: Sunning themselves and resting up for the next foray into the bay and ocean.
Yes, the classic, sunning sea lions. I do seem to remember a distinct 'fragrance'. :D

It's a terrific photo, and Judy answered my question about sea lions, I guess this is a place they like to be? how extraordinary :)

Strange to see how animals fit in to the surroundings we create . . sometimes, I think we worry too much about the things we do. Nature is resilient.

I had a chuckle to see this. I've heard reports of what a nuisance they are, although they existed long before the pier. Perhaps they are happy believing the pier was built for them. Ah, fragance as Judy mentioned I didn't think of that. Good thing they are lazy or they may be beggars too. Great capture, Glenn.
