POTD: Colonies and Rafts

Colonies and Rafts Heceta Head, Oregon 2013

What’s louder than the surf crashing on the rocks? Sea lions lounging on and near the shore. While stopped at an overlook taking in the far view, the sound of this colony and pod drew me to the edge to look down. (A group of sea lions on the shore is called a colony; floating on the water they are called a raft–or so I read.)]]>
