April 13: Basking seal

While enjoying lunch at the Waterfront Restaurant on Camden harbor today, I noticed several patrons and a few of the waitstaff craning their necks to see something out the window. Apparently a seal was out on one of the floats in the inner harbor. I had to see it for myself, of course, and there it was--a big fat, patchy seal stretched out atop the float in presumed bliss in the bright sun. While I don't ascribe to the notion that animals don't possess emotions, I try not to project my own emotions onto them. However, there's no way that wasn't one relaxed and happy seal.

Seal basking on dock--
to achieve such calm I too
should sprawl in the sun.
