I Saw A Seal

Walking along Puget Sound on Saturday I saw a seal’s sleek black head pop up out of the water, whiskered nose twitching. In the seconds it took to grab my phone the head was gone; the seal didn’t surface again. Was it testing its location… taking a big gulp of air… checking out the wind? I’ll never know. The seal was there, and then it was gone, like so many moments in life.

  1. for Katie: It does. We have very young seal pups on the small beach just below where I live.There’s a volunteer group that rushes to create safe spaces when seal pups are there so that no one goes too close and frightens or harms them.
