Thanks to everyone who’s been sending photos – we have more in queue but first this afternoon, seal sightings. Longtime contributor David Hutchinson, who also is a longtime volunteer with Seal Sitters Marine Mammal Stranding Network, took both these photos of recent harbor-seal sightings on the West Seattle shore.

Both were taken from a distance – don’t ever try to get up close for a photo.

    I’m a bit envious of that seal sunning it’s belly, looks so nice

    Please remember that dogs aren’t allowed on Seattle Park beaches here in W. Seattle. They can scare off seals.

Sorry, comment time is over.
