Seal Bay on Kangaroo Island, where sealions frolic and cavort. Except when tourists are watching, then mainly they bask and allow adoration and the odd photo.
This baby is sheltering in the foreshore, until his mother returns from her three day fishing trip. When she returns, all she wants to do is sleep. When she returns, all he wants to do is suckle. Win-win.
This sealion was sleeping in the shallow cave at the top of this sand hill, nestled in against cliffs. To exit: slide down, down, down. Much easier than climbing up must be. Then it’s off to sea again.
