January 26th marked the 10th day that Harbor Seal pup Uno has been monitored in January on Lincoln Park and lately Cove 3 beach at Alki. Uno appears healthy for a 4-6 month old pup and its activity level is good. Usually Uno arrives on the beach at high tide and departs for the water some 4 to 7 hours later...a normal rest pattern for a pup. Seal Sitters continues to monitor Uno in rain and wind and sometimes even a little sun. California Sea Lions are present in normal winter numbers in the bay but do not come to rest on local beaches preferring buoys and barge decks as resting spots. Winter has provided some dramatic lighting effects but unhappily no pot of gold.
