Not just another log

I d0n't know if you can see by the picture but that's not all logs on the beach. There is an Elephant seal there too. This is taken at the famous willows beach in Oak Bay today. Apparently it is molting and its a normal process that takes about a month. I read a little flyer that the municipality had posted as well as the area was taped off with yellow do not enter tape. The seal will loose most of it's fur and skin and be in the process of growning new . It will flop around and cover it self with sand. A interesting sight to see, one i didn't expect to see.

You might have to zoom in on the pic to make out the seal better.

Ok till next time.
