Marine Mammal Friday

My visiting parents & I witnessed some incredible sights today:
What I presume was a dolphin feeding frenzy off Hendry's beach at about 11:30 AM. About two dozen
dolphins splashing, some even coming completely out of the water in jumping arcs. Several dive-bombing
sea birds were also enjoying the feast. It was glorious! We also saw a juvenile sea lion on a rock, where
the water met the shore. Is this normal? It didn't look distressed, but I so rarely see a sea lion on shore.
Both of these were seen about 500 yards east of the Mesa Lane steps. It was March Sea-Mammal Madness!
And on such a gorgeous day.
