Another seal pup came ashore near the lighthouse this afternoon to rest, but was scared back into the Sound. An unwitting person climbed over the rocks from the south to take a photo of the West Seattle landmark and the pup hustled into the waves. Our volunteers had taped off the north end of the beach, but the tide had closed off access from the south end. Minutes earlier, a family walking down from Alki Beach toward the seal was very respectful and interested to learn about pups on our beaches. The girls nicknamed this pup Carmen. Carmen had been onshore long enough to dry off, so had at least rested a bit.
