This is the life

We were walking the Hut point ridge trail and happened upon some seals sunning themselves on the ice:
It seems to me that these seals have a pretty good life. They eat and spend days laying on the ice sunning themselves.

I'm working on getting as fat as them, but I don't know if I'll be able to pull off the laying around for days sunning myself; there's far too much work to do. The other big snag is that I'm not a huge fan sushi, and I'm guessing they don't have too many Chipotle burrito shops under the ice, so the food situation may be a little grim.

I had to walk around some flags and out on a rather dodgy looking snow drift to get these pictures. The flags were red instead of black, so I'm just going to assume that they were there marking the route. :)

Hello Josh,
Can't read your blog all season without a hello. Give Thom a hug for me. While he doesn't celebrate an actual birthday while he's down there, he is a summer solstice baby, so you could claim a reason to fete him on Thursday if you'd like. I've been looking around for a particularly embarrasing image to send you, of him naked-swimming in Lake Vanda in 1989, but no luck. Anyhow, thanks for providing me and the kids and other friends in Albion another window into Andrill life. I'm glad your season has gone so well,
Ellen W
