... 8 to 10 feet past a sea lion colony lounging on a piece of pier. They decided we got too close and loudly "ARF"ed and shook their slimy heads and even showed some large and fairly pointy looking teeth...we paddled out of there real quick.

Suddenly, a huge gray blob darted up from the sea floor and swam ...
