About 100 female elephant seals and their pups are claiming Drakes Beach in California for their own, according to The Guardian. They’re chilling in the parking lot, picnicking at tables, and playing volleyball probably. Normally, staff keeps seals and beachgoers apart, but during the shutdown, there was no one around to keep the seals from doing their thing.

Let them have it. Humans have proven time and again that we don’t deserve nice things.

Cheers Pink Ears!

Temperatures below freezing? Crank that oven up to 500! What’s everyone cooking or baking? Pain de Campagne here. And another question, I have an opportunity to go to London in May, I’m wondering if I shouldn’t because of the Brexit negotiations. On the other hand I’m nearly dancing with excitement at the thought of going.
