Seal Bay…

by on Mar.29, 2015, under Life, Photography

We said our goodbye’s to Penneshaw and started our journey to the other side of the island. We were planning a few little stops along the way including a side trip to Seal Bay and the Raptor Domain. But first we made this little detour to check out the Gala Day at American River.

The Seal Bay Conservation Park is on the southern shores of Kangaroo Island and it allows you to see the Australian Sea Lion up close.

There’s a nice set of boardwalks leading you right down to the beach where you can view the sea lions.

and thats my three daughters jogging down to the bottom.

I figured I’d better have at least one shot of a sea lion. Though to be honest I though we may be back here again later to go out on the tour so I didn’t bring a long lens and I wasn’t really trying to take any pictures yet. Unfortunately we weren’t back here again but we did see many many more seals and sea lions right where we were staying for the next five days.
