about this shell...

I found this Hawaiian Monk Seal comfortably nestled in the rocks at the end of Kaena Point. He seemed to be so at peace, and so in 'his place'. He looked me over while I took his photo but he wasn't in the least bit annoyed that I was there. I kept a respectable distance of course, as I knew that this was his rock pile and I was just a polite guest aware not to wear out my welcome.
