I think these guys were my favourite though. The sea lions. They glide effortlessly and gracefully through the water. The male sea lions make quite a racket as they swim round showing the ladies who’s boss. The deep ARF ARF ARF rings out. When it’s time for feeding the female sealions wave to get your attention, they also make a lot of noise, but not half as much as the boys.
We were very lucky in that we got to feed them. If I closed my eyes as I put my hand in the bucket of dead, cold, slimy fish I was fine … unlike Erica who was retching.
At one point we had to distract the younger, more lively ones so that we could feed the older, and in some cases, blind sea lions.
