Wally the sociable sea lion greets boaters.

Forgive me for telling the following very silly story.  I suppose I like this short story because it happens to be true.

As always, please follow the captions…

A beautiful day on Shelter Island and kayakers approach the boat ramp area.

A fisherman has arrived on a boat and he's tossing leftover bait to pelicans and gulls.

And look who else is tagging along--it's Wally the sea lion!

The fisherman told me the California sea lion’s name is Wally. He told the kayakers the same thing. So it seems his name must be Wally!
