Today’s walk was one to remember. Mark and I started at Owen’s Beach and walked to the Point of Point Defiance. We saw swimmers of all varieties.
It began with the human swimmers.
And then we saw harbor seals. Just one or two at first.
I asked Mark if those dots in the distance were a flock of birds. As they came closer, it became clear it was an entire bob of seals. They swam past us heading towards the marina.
Then three sea lions went past rapidly in the other direction.
Finally, in the passage halfway between Tacoma and Vashon four fast, sleek “waves” rolled by, creating amazing and regular waves on the shore that had previously been very still water. Could these have been cetacean of some form?
Truly an amazing day of watching and being watched.
