Back on the 14th March , when the sky was blue and there was a little bit of sun, Dad and I went for a walk along the beach.   We sat and had a hot drink and a bacon sandwich at a place called the ' Cat and Dog Steps'  ( I must remember to do a post on that) and we heard a man talking about a baby seal which had been stranded by the tide.

So of course we had to go and see for ourselves, the pup wasn't hard to find lying not far from the pier wall. It was perfectly well and quite relaxed. The coastguards were aware of it and had put up a sign saying so and advising people not to go to close, those seals have very sharp teeth you know.

We watched  for quite a while as it lay there having a nap , the occasional scratch and opening its eyes to survey its surroundings . It really was beautiful and you could just sink into those big eyes. Fingers crossed it got back home alright when the tide came back in .

For those who enquired the word 'pump' also means 'fart' ha ha

  1. Awww, he's so cute. It would have been so hard not to go and help him out. Like you, I hope he survived until the tide came in.
