Sea Lions in the Sun


Sea lions bask in the hot midday sun on an Argentine beach.



A loner.

Enjoying the sea air.


We went on several side trips during our cruise and made sure to see as much sea life as we could find. These happy critters looked like they were enjoying their day at the beach.
Our port was Puerto Madryn and this is from Punta Norte.

Just beautiful Leah. The top photo, looks like the gull is snatching something from the sea lions mouth.

Why thank you, MizFit. And yes, it's a new pic of me. That's the general Cape Horn area behind me.

The sea lions look so relaxed soaking in the sunshine. I think I need to go south too, though I'm just as happy to visit here to see your trip photos.

They were having a really good bask, Barbara.
