daylight slumber

Daylight Saving Time is upon us in most of North America and, let me assure you, tomorrow at work I will be dozy and semi-comatose just like a pod of lazy California sea lions.

At Pier 39 of San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf, a pod of California sea lions bask in the January sun. (2005). The above photo was shot with my Olympus Stylus 35mm.


  1. I love that picture!!! It makes me wish I was still at home in bed curled up with my pillow.

  2. Hi Katie, I've always liked this photo, too. If only we could all live a seal's life, eh?

  3. Many folks say that on a stormy, rainy day, you should cuddle up beside a warm fire. I, however, believe that the warf is the only place to snuggle fins:)

    BUT... do you remember how loud those cuddly creatures are? I personally wouldn't want to sleep next to one without a few tranquilizers...

  4. Hi -c, I agree, fins + wharf = a good snuggle. It's just sensible math.

    Those seals definitely were loud. I didn't know that they hung out on the pier, but even through the crowds at Fisherman's Wharf, I could hear them from a distance. I followed the sound and imagine my surprise when I saw them! It made for a nice Kodak moment ...
