This was taken last Thursday in St. Ives when I was TRYING to get Leah to have a nap before dinner. Everyone else was going for a drink so I volunteered to walk around with her in her pushchair to see if she would nod off.
We (well I) decided to walk along the pier/harbour wall to see what I could see and I spotted a seal! I have seen them here before and it is quite common for them to swim into the harbour when the tide is high.
They really have cute faces, don't you think? Anyway this one was following in a fishing boat (clever little seal) and he did manage to get a few mackerel thrown his way!
You can see him (sorry, or her) waiting in anticipation here, almost like a dog! So cute!!
