Can You See It?

When I took the camera down from my face the gentleman visible sunbathing just left of centre in the above photo waved and pointed again. I walked over a little closer and he continued to point to the rocks just below him and then I saw something move. To the right you can see the Harbour Seal pup that had hauled itself up on the rocks to rest. Its dappled coat fits in so well with its surroundings that if it had not moved I doubt I would ever have seen it.

The point of land jutting out in the above photo is Holland Point, along the shoreline below Dallas Road in the James Bay neighbourhood. The ocean is the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the mountains in the background are on the Olympic Peninsula in the USA.

Wonderful shot! Good thing the sunbather point it out!

Someone recently told me there is a 'clothing optional' stretch right about there.
Careful when pointing that camera. May be misinterpreted :).

"Clothing optional"? In Victoria? Dream on! Or maybe you were referring to the seal who, though quite naked, is nonetheless quite modestly posed.

I know, hard to believe. Along Dallas Road there is a near 100% chance of seeing either a Blue Heron or just some blue hair.
