Not entirely pleasant.P1050674Sometimes a sea lion would try and climb up on the neighboring yacht docks. A guy would spray them lightly with a hose, and they would go away. Creatures who live in the cold ocean water, afraid of a little hose water? Go figure.P1050682Many happy tourists were enjoying the sea lions.P1050688There’s a live webcam that gives you a little live picture of the sea lions here.
