Very close to sunrise and Spearmint, the seal keeps a watchful eye on a paddleboarder. She escorts him out of the water but decides not to clamber up the slope that he uses to exit the water. Instead she decides to swim off to a nearby swimming beach.
Just moments later with the sunrise properly established she finds a beach with several swimmers. All the swimmers know not to be in the water with her and step away from their proposed swims.
Spearmint takes a few moments to bask in the rising sun.
And have a bit of a morning face wash with her flippers.
The swimmers all managed to sneak into the water on the far side of the beach and swam as she settled down for a sleep.
Its been a long two months without much sun. Sunrise and a seal is a lovely way to start the day.
