Late seals

Late seals are still coming to pup on the pebble beach. Two or three small pups sing songs that raise the hair on the back of the neck. Plaintive, yearning sealsongs of the sea. Beautiful. And they feed on the rich seal milk from their mothers and grow fast to beat the early storms of winter that will soon come and threaten their haven.

Fabulous! What a beautiful land you live in; I like the sound of the "Salmon bigger than Lurchers and Sea Trout(Sewin?) straight from the sea, sweeter than sweet".
