I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Likes long walks along the beach

White sand, turquoise water, black rock. And sea lions, dozens and dozens of sea lions. Most of them were asleep, recuperating from their last hunt; it's not easy to catch fish with your teeth. They sprawled out on the sand in long oblivious rows, or curled into piles of fur. Some of them had track marks where other sea lions had just waddled over them.

It wasn't always that easy to stay six feet away. They were curious about us and our cameras, and more than once I backed away from a sea lion I'd gotten too close to only to almost step on another who'd come up behind me.
