Al stayed up late (early?) playing with his computer project..
Soon after I awoke, I was laying in bed, and I heard/felt a thump. What was that? It came again! Did something bump us? It should be low tide....are we hitting a rock? And once more a thump. I look out the window and see that the water is low indeed. And then I see a seal. Was he playing with us? Hmmm. I did not hear the thump again.
I turn on the computer and check facebook, being quiet to not disturb Sleeping Al. The coffee grinder would surely disturb him.
I look up, and again I see a seal! He has a fabulous 'zen' pose going on. I grab the camera, and when I open the cabin door, he looks over, but holds the pose with his rear flippers peeking out.
Mostly, he appears to be worshiping the sun, facing it with eyes closed, soaking in the rays...much as I did yesterday afternoon. He had to have floated in this way for nearly half an hour!
After breakfast and a shower, I was doing dishes, and I heard a terrible sound. It sounded somewhat like a woman screaming, but it was SO CLOSE, and if it was a person, why was she not using any words?! I dried my hands and began looking around. There were no nearby boats. I didn't see anyone in the water. Then I spied this fellow on the beach:
