... in the main port are hundreds of huge pelicans and families of sea lions. Although beautiful birds, these pelicans were also terrifying. Their beaks are about two feet long and could easily peck your brains out from far away. The sea lions, conversely looked completely harmless although you know they could really hurt you. When I saw them, they were all trying to sleep in the water. To do this, they just ...
