I stayed with this seal for quite a while, watching it roll around and play in the snow. It must have been about 10 meters from me. It would just roll around and get itself snowy, shake off the snow, then go do it all again. It was so fat and ungainly on land that it was comical and cute. I know they are lithe and fast in the water… it kind of reminded me of how I, being the worst of both worlds, am ungainly both on land and in sea.
