Guido went for a walk, while Katia and I were hanging out on the beach reading our books one morning while we were staying up on the North Shore. When Guido came back, he started talking to Katia in Italian. I heard the words "la foca" and knew right away that he must have seen a seal! He said he thought he saw a big rock on the beach, but when he got closer, he realized that it was a seal! So off we went to check out this amazing creature. I have heard of Hawaiian Monk Seals coming up on the beach every now and then but it is a pretty rare sight to see and something I have never experienced in person.
The lifeguard was pretty sure it was a girl seal. Isn't she cute?
