San Francisco's sea lions

Blogging from San Fransisco.

A few months after the 1989 earthquake, the sea lions that that had been living off of seal rocks of San Francisco's western coast, migrated into San Francisco Bay, choosing Pier 39 on Fisherman's Wharf as their new home.

Boat owners weren't too happy, but they eventually began to get used to the barking beasts, and the boats were given new slots.

There were about 100 sea lions this afternoon at Pier 39. The mostly just sat on the pier, a few swam, a few fought each other.
