I walked the length of the boardwalk and walked to the end of the wharf and discovered sea lions. Whereas the sea lions near San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf were noisy and fragrant, these sea lions were relatively quiet, resting on the boards that make up the structure of the pier. In fact, if you didn't look down to the pier structure, you would not even know there were sea lions resting there. The water was quite a bit lower than the boards the sea lions were resting on.
The highlight were the very nice marine docents, who explained the sea lion behavior and sugggested that we look off the edge of the wharf and see the raft of sea lions. Yes, indeed, there was a reasonbly sized group of sea lions that were huddled together, floating and bobbing in the water like a large raft, in peaceful co-existence.
I had never seen that behavior before. It was quite a sight. It wasn't your typical noisy sea lions fighting for premium space. I wish I could have taken a picture, however, the angle of the sun and the color of the ocean and the sea lion raft, would not do justice to the peaceful scene.
