Pup enjoys late afternoon snooze

An alert, silky white seal pup managed to get in a pretty good snooze late yesterday afternoon and evening, snuggled in the rocks below the Alki sea wall. The pup appears to have an eye infection, but overall body condition and demeanor looked encouraging.

Volunteers stood quietly on duty and were treated to a brilliant sunset. As darkness fell and the tide brushed over him, the pup nicknamed Hyak was not quite ready to return to Puget Sound. He climbed higher up onto the rock and rested a bit more until drenched by a series of waves from a passing ferry. Hyak slipped off the rock and disappeared into the cold waters.
