Simpson Reef Overlook

We just completed a wonderful several days along the Oregon coast. While the temperatures were wonderful the wind was often very severe. The windchill factor necessitated extra clothing in the early mornings.

During our visits to Simpson reef overlook we were delighted to finally find some wild life to photograph and video. Below are a few of our efforts, hope you enjoy them. We certainly enjoyed the opportunity to view the sea lions, seals and walruses.

This was our first sighting of the sea lions. The lighting was terrible as it was mid afternoon and they were all trying to get into the shade. 🙂

We returned very early the next morning to find the fog almost totally obscuring the view. Finally it started to lift and we were able to get some images.

Sleeping in, an early morning view of the walruses and sea lions.

A couple of seals on the right joined the sea lions sleeping on a small beach near Simpson Reef which were beginning to awaken.

Finally awake the sparring began over whose beach it is. The barking intensified. A wonderful sight!

Finally for today this is a short video of them sparring. I wish we had not been so far away and the wind had not been blowing a gale so the barking could be heard more clearly.
