Several years ago, my friend's Pete and Ryan picked me up for a regular surf adventure. We paddled the channel at Morro Bay and walked the nearly half mile down the beach. Just north of the jetty, huddled near the rocks, a baby Harbor Seal lay almost invisible. It was alone, rather unusual for such an infant, and seemed disoriented and immobilized. After some discussion, we decided to take the Seal back to Morro Bay to get some help (I found out this is not the way to approach the situation; never touch or move a sea mammal, just contact the Marine Mammal Center).
