Three great afternoons at Race Rocks with the three blocks of first year Marine Science students – Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.

We observed and photographed many sea lions, both California (Zalophus californianus) and Stellar or Northern sea lions (Eumetopias jubatus).IMG_1492

The weather was variable among the three trips – fog, sunshine and rain at various times.  The boat ride back today was particularly wet!
