Sea Lions

Nov. 7 – K.I. First Stop

The first stop on Kangaroo Island was at Seal Bay where we got to see Australian Sea Lions resting after coming back to shore at the end of 3 days of feeding in the ocean. They swim/hunt for fish/eat for 3 days straight, then come ashore and collapse on the sand for 3 days of rest. We weren't allowed to get very close so the animals wouldn't be disturbed, but a couple of them waddled past us. We also got some great shots of a baby seal nursing while his mother slept. To me, this was worth the price and everything after was a bonus!
