A Red Sandy Beach
This island looked entirely different from the others. The rock was really red, and so there was a red sand beach. This is where the sea lions liked to hang out. We went there late in the afternoon, and took a Zodiac ride along the shore first. Then, we did a wet landing, and got to stroll along the beach with the sea lions lounging in the sun. They were not afraid. They were in small groups all along the shore, waving their flippers to swat the bugs. There were a few young ones, but no small pups. Their fur was covered with the red sand. It was a peaceful and serene moment....an honor to witness this unique and beautiful place.
