Today the water was deep turquoise with cold clear air and a high sky in which the moon could be seen for most of the day. As I rode along the newly mended Spring Street, I could see the distant rocks and white blobs but could not make out if it was indeed the seals, back at their usual spot off the beach below the south east track for the winter. Since Hurricane Sandy re-modelled all the coast, it is now possible to scramble over newly descended rock and scree at low tide all the way round from the little beach below St Ann’s and round the low bluff to Spring Street.
So I left the bike at the family home, collected Finn, and took him for a walk to see if the seals were indeed on the rocks. Click for bigger pictures.
