Washington Park: Cliffs & Seals & Porpoises, Oh My!

As you might have guessed by the exciting title, I had an adventure yesterday. Lots of fun stuff. Thankfully, the weather decided to cooperate for once. 😛

So, Squink and I tagged along with our Auntie A’s little explorer group. They needed a few extra helpers since the chosen location was a trail at Washington Park that, to the uneducated, looked like it went straight off a cliff. It didn’t, really. Just a really really steep trail downhill. 

Anyway, we were watching for seals, otters and porpoises. We saw about three seals, countless porpoises and one otter that I did not have my camera prepared for in time.

This was one of my favorite photo trips. 🙂 It was very breezy and ocean-y and nice. I was whistling Horatio Hornblower’s theme to myself almost the whole time. 😛

Enjoy the pics!

Hope you enjoyed! Ever been to Washington, park or otherwise?

  1. I thought the seal was an otter at first. And porpoises! 😀 That makes me so happy. Otters are such fun animals. 😀 As usual, I think your photography is gorgeous, and it’s so beautiful… One of the photos looked like the river Anduin from “Lord of the Rings.” 😀

    1. I know! My aunt thought he was an otter too at first. 😛 That was the first one that got curious about us.
      *grins really big* Thanks! 🙂 Hey, that’s cool. Which picture?

        1. Oh cool! 😀 *is happy and hugs you*
          Yeah, I’m filing that one away for a possible fair picture. A print is hanging by my bed at the moment so I can keep looking at it when I want to. 😛

Any thoughts?
