Seal Pup

Walking on the beach this morning, in a steady rain, we saw movement up at the top of the sand under the cliff. Seems this seal pup had been asleep while the tide went out, and we'd woken him* rudely. At first he growled at us when we went over to see if he was OK, but once he got used to us, he became curious and at one point came over to us to take a closer look.

It really made our day seeing him. He made his way slowly down the beach and got back to the sea, his family and safety.
*no idea if he was a he or a she
