|Reef and I had an invite to meet some sea lions up close for the first time! And when I say up close....I didnt expect to be so close as to get a kiss from one! I had seen the show where the sea lions do lots of amazing tricks and had seen them swimming in their pool but to be stood next to one (and they are huge) is another matter. He let me stroke his back and everytime I stood close to him he leaned in for another wet salty kiss. I was fascinated to see that they have claws on their back rubbery flippers and also have the small indents where they once had nails on the front flippers. Amazing experience!|
Hope you enjoy the photos!
