Seal Watching

A couple of weeks ago, we went to visit a new friend, Hans Thomas Weber. My mom and dad have been friends with his parents, John & Bridget, for a long time. Hans didn't seem to like me at first.

We were lucky to get a couple of warm days, so we could go for long walks on the beach. On one of our walks, we saw a seal that had been washed onto the beach.

He was really cute, but the beach ranger said his claws were really dangerous, so we just looked at him from a safe distance.

It seemed like we waited for high tide forever, in hopes that the seal would swim back into the ocean. Happily, he did!
