Saying Hello to the Seals


Always a treat, a family tradition.
A Sunday afternoon in the Autumn with the seals.
Why these Mamas choose to birth on an RAF firing range ( RAF Doona Nook )
is a mystery,
but birth they do, in their hundreds.

Such a sight, a beach full of Mamas, Papas and their babes.
We stand and stare, delight in their beauty.
Admire their size, speed and grandeur.

A picnic in the car ( well it is November )
flasks of coffee, sandwiches and slices of cake.
A fluffy friend to take home and love.
And plenty of smiles.
