Shell Island is a small island just off Oregon's Coast. We often go to an overlook on the mainland and spend hours watching the marine life at Shell Island. Often it is too windy for decent sketching, but this afternoon the wind was mild and we were waiting, hoping the eagle would hunt.
Somewhere out in the Pacific there must have been stormy weather. Big waves were rolling in, one after the other, and crashing on exposed rocks. A cluster of half a dozen sea lions were trying to rest on one of the low rocks …. and getting throughly drenched whenever a large wave rolled in.
