Sea Lions in Valdivia

We are spending the long weekend of the 21st of May (the celebration of the Glorias Navales of 1879) in the southern city of Valdivia. 

Sea lions don't just hang out around the fish market in downtown Valdivia.

They hang out EVERYWHERE - taking their Sunday ease Monday through Friday, all over every place where humans thought they'd go ahead and build themselves a jetty.

Or a pontoon.

Sea Lions are enormously photogenic.

With a regal presence.

Force of personality

And a gravity of purpose

That lends their every activity an air of noblesse-oblige and patronage.

But to be deeply, bitterly frank, they mostly don't do all that much.
