Photographer's Note

If you've never been to San Francisco - down on the bay at Pier 39 (a big tourist spot on the wharf - with lots of shops, fresh seafood for sale, and the alcatraz jump off point to name a few) there is an area where Sea Lions make a resting place.

There are a bunch of little floating docks, as you can see pictured, clustered together that are now there only for the Sea Lions. And, boy are they a noisy crowd! You can hear these guys from pretty far away as you approach them. I can't say that they smell particularly well either, but they are GREAT fun to watch for a while. They are always "fighting" with one another, jumping in and out of the water, and out course making quite a racket.

I have other photos that are closeups of the Sea Lions, but I choose this photo because I think that it is more suited for this site. It gives you a feeling of what this little area in the bay looks like.

All comments are welcome! Thanks for looking.
