May 9B, 2008 Slackin at low tide.

Wasn't sure the antler spam was the Friday ani mule shot so I figured I'll run this.

I caught this shot down at our City's wharf.

how do they get up there?
- climb? (nah),
- jump out of the water (clever)
- swim at high tide and wait, and wait, and wait, and wait



and the more important question: what do they taste like?

in the old wharf section of newport, oregon there is a resident colony of sea lions who live on and around the unused docks and pilings. i found them when i heard (and smelled) what sounded like an old man coughing up a lung made of 3 day old, rotting fish. which... i guess... is kind of what they were doing.

They have a faintly fishy flavor, like a bald eagle. And yet their meat is surprisingly stringy, much like a Siberian tiger's.

Kind of like a cross between manatee and Tazmanian tiger?

I likewise have visited Newport, made the mistake of staying in a waterfront motel across the inlet from the sealion hangout(haul out). Damn things kept us awake all night.
