Love going to visit the seals a distance. Wish it was a clearer day but love these beautiful sea mammals.
There were at least 13 seals out at Brace Cove on Sunday. They were very content sleeping and resting on the rocks.
Way out but so cute. Very grainy but adorable.
Maybe the Great White sharks are moving south, because the seals are back at Brace Cove. Yesterday I watched for 20 minutes as the initial rocks became exposed.
On this evening of the Oscars we present the Surfing Seals of Brace Cove.
On yesterday’s Good Morning Gloucester there was a story and video from Mike Codair about rescue of a Harp Seal stranded on the ice. That is prompting me to go “off Island” and post photos from our 2002 trip to see the newborn on the Gulf of St Lawrence pack ice, near our base, Iles … Continue reading Harp Seals — pat morss
We were able to photograph a few of the seals resting and relaxing at Brace Cove this week. It was a gorgeous day, mild and sunny for mid December, and the light was hitting them just right. There was another couple nearby commenting on how beautiful it was to see them with the sun spotlight … Continue reading Sunning Seals at Brace Cove
What a treat to see a very large what I believe to be a female Gray Seal who popped up her head as she was foraging for food. What a beauty! This gorgeous creature was marked light with dark, irregular blotches… @ first I thought she was a bouy bobbing up and down… looked through … Continue reading “Gray Seal in Gloucester!” Female Gray Seal who popped up her head as she was foraging for food Photos Courtesy of CarinMacnamara
The seals approve of Brace Cove. We had a record (for us) of 24 this last weekend.
Every time I see these cuties they make me smile.
FOB Susan LaRosa alerted me to these seals resting on a rock off Cressy’s Beach recently so it gave me a good excuse to go down there and enjoy the view. I thought you might like it too. Great spot for a little quiet contemplation. Thanks Susan!
Love when visiting the seals at Brace Cove. One of these seals actually matches the rock.
Early this morning Mike Codair takes his walk and comes upon a stranded baby harp seal- He texts, asking what is the right thing to do- So I told him not to get close and gave him the number to the SSC Marine Mammal Rescue. They sent someone out and the baby seal is now … Continue reading Codair Saves A Baby Harp Seal By Doing The Right Thing
We were treated to a few antics from the seals at Brace Cove recently. I hadn’t seen them in a while so it was fun to be “reunited”. We observed come cavorting and some “hey, this is my side of the rock” behavior.
Not the best photos but these cuties just love hanging out.
We came across our friends the seals on the rocks at Brace Cove on a recent sunny day. I understand they are not exactly sunning themselves, but rather “thermo-regulating” but that doesn’t have the same poetic rhythm for a post title. I counted at least 17 of them, which is a larger group than I … Continue reading Seals Sunning at Brace Cove
Another active week for birds, and a personal record 14 seals at Brace Cove.
