Chores and blog writing this morning we went ashore for late lunch and internet in our now favourite place, Miconia. Our taxi driver giggled as I said farewell to Lenny and Lionel and off we went. En route we passed a ‘One Careful Owner’ complete with resting and preening Pecalins. Delightful.

A baby seal finds a resting place on the dinghy.

Stepping ashore we saw loads of the resting masses under the landing ladder that goes up to the boardwalk.

We can see why it is highly recommended to use the dollar water taxi or you find ‘the sleeping ones’ on or in your dinghy. Not entirely certain what Baby Beez would think to this intrusion.

We watched as a new arrival caused much barking and snarling as he passed a couple of newlyweds.

Oh what a natural poser. However, just look at the pile of poo in the centre shot. So pleased Lenny and Lionel don’t leave these ‘heaps’ on the stern platform.

He even smiled for us.

Bear was happy to pose with this little one but leapt up with a silent manly squeal as he felt a curious wet nose touch the back of his calf. Cute though.

It seems they sleep au natural as well. Even in the midst of a group of busy Sally Light-foots.

Looks like a typical regional meeting.

It looks odd to see one attempting to look wild

Ok so I’m a lost cause. Just cute, but oh so, so smelly.
 
 
 
 
 
 
ALL IN ALL STILL SUCH A NOVELTY
