visiting the sea lions at Pier 39 --- #2 of 2
San Francisco, California
Thursday, October 18, 2012

A few California sea lions started arriving at Pier 39 shortly after the Loma Prieta earthquake in 1989 and, by January 1990, a large group had taken over K-Dock. The population ranges from several hundred to more than 1,700 individuals, mostly males.

The sea lions have a nice view of The City from the dock!

I remember that we watched for almost an hour. It was great to see how they constantly were defending their territory!
