Weaners in the Grass

These weaners are finding high ground, as the tide brings the waves all the way up the beach. They are mature enough now to manage in the waves -- large enough in size, and starting to play in the surf. They aren't fully competent swimmers and divers, yet, but they are getting there.
I've never seen so many of them up so high on the shelf above the beach. One had some greenery hanging out of his mouth. We joked about the Vegetarian Seal.
These are all well-nourished, of good size, healthy and strong.
The USGS biologist is doing a population count this month. I'll report those results when they are available.
