April 29, 2017 - For more than a week the sound of barking sea lions has echoed through the morning air in the Richmond Beach area just south of the Saltwater Park.

This particular morning the ruckus began before 6am and lasted until nearly noon. It was difficult to count the numbers, but I would guess there were easily 20-30 animals.

They did not seem to be disturbed by people walking the beach as we experienced a big minus tide which reached the low of (-2.46 at 12:54pm).

Eventually their numbers declined and they seemed to move off toward the south. Maybe to visit Shilshole Marina.

Enjoy another low tide on Sunday of (-2.17 at 1:43pm)
