So I go down to the water and I find everyone looking at a sea lion. I guess the Lifeguard was there, not only just to see it for himself, but to make sure no one molested the sea lion and to see that the sea lion didn't molest anyone. Well, no one was molested and the sea lion went back for a swim. Pretty cool. Didn't the sea lion population in Santa Monica Bay used to be huge? Is it such a novelty now?
