baby seal at alki beach

We went to Alki last night and saw a baby seal on the beach just north of the beach house. The area immediately around the seal was roped off by yellow police tape to keep people away. Seal mothers leave their babies on the beach as they fish for salmon - no mother in sight though. The baby watched everyone for a bit, then flopped back into the water and swam away. It was very fat and very cute.

Small bit on the westseattleblog page too.
