Can you guess what this post is about based on the title? If you live near the ocean you probably can! Sea lions!!

I so enjoyed watching them during a recent afternoon stroll on the waterfront at Newport, Oregon.
They are so entertaining to watch. Giant creatures with the cutest little faces that sleep so peacefully…
…until they are wakened by another who appears to be guarding while the other slept. When another sea lion approaches, the one that was guarding starts to bark “or, or, or, or, or” and all the sea lions turn into aggressive looking bear type animals with angry eyes and red mouths baring sharp teeth.
The approaching sea lion barks too, teeth clash, and they try to bite each other’s tiny ears until the new sea lion establishes a space on the dock.
And then they are all lovey dovey again with their peaceful cute little faces all sleeping in a pile like puppies.
Ah, the good life 🙂
