More Silly Seals
The last one you probably can't make them all out, but there are six seal heads in the shot.
During the paddle, we also scared up a bunch of gulls....
All-around it was another good day in Oregon...

After seeing that...we decided it may not have been the best day to put in there. So, off we went to our usual beach. Unfortunately...it didn't look much better...however, I decided to give it a shot anyway.
Here I am in full wetsuit glory...lol.
So..then I decided to head out....here's one of me (you can just see me out there with my paddle raised) cresting a wave...
Needless to say..with the way the surf was, I was only out there for about half an hour before I got sick of battling the ocean.
So..we headed home...after feeling slightly dejected, I decided we should head out to the bay and see if I could get some seal shots before sunset. Of course, the second the seals found out I had a camera in hand, they all became incredibly camera shy. This is the best pic I could get (you can just see the little seal head if you look along the water surface right in the centre of the pic...)
And here's a second...the silhouette is the seal's head as he cruised next to my boat...
Of course, after getting those "fabulous" shots, I decided to get grouchy and put the camera back in the dry bag and continue my paddle. And also, of course, the second I did that, the seals were more than happy to get within 5 feet of the boat and start frolicking....stupid mammals. I'll get them yet....lol. If it kills me, I'll have good seal pics up here in the near future..lol.
After all that, I decided to snap one last pic of the sunset over the point and call it a night.....(not the best sunset..the fog/mist was rolling in and the sun was setting over the point...but it'll do until I get a nice sunset pic from Ona Beach...;) )
Cheers from Oregon....

The surf yesterday wasn't that spectacular...4-5 ft max...nothing overly fun to ride until you got out past the surf line and into the swells....I'll try and grab a couple of shots on a windier/wavier day...
I'll grab a couple of the seals this afternoon too when I'm out and about...
