September4th'10. We woke up at 5am and hiked out to a seal colony during haul-out season. Weather for the day was predicted to be over cast with chances of rain, but all we came across was a beautiful sunrise and warm northerlies. The waves, despite there not being much wind, were wild and untamed. And the seals them selves were as mellow as ever, basking on the rocks with one eye open peering over to us.
