This past week we made plans to revisit. Our first stop at, what we were told was their favored resting place, we did not see them. Phriend suggested we make seal noises and think “happy thoughts”. All with the hopes this would bring them out from hiding. Sadly all it brought was strange looks from other visitors. We drove to the lighthouse again, watched some snow surfers, and admired the Manhattan skyline. On our way out of the park, we made one more stop to check for the seals and there they were 60 or more lined up in a row, sunning themselves on a sandbar. I was truly amazed, that this migration has been going on for years and I did not know about it. I am glad I do now.
