Live. Laugh. Lounge.
If you want a lesson in relaxation, grab your notepad and head down to the ocean to take tips from a harbor seal, an animal known to lounge anywhere and everywhere.
This spotted sea sausage is arguably Monterey Bay's most perpetually comfortable animal — it has the enviable ability to kick back and get cozy in all sorts of surprising spots. Frigid waters? A thick layer of blubber keeps it warm. Sharp rocks? Blubber acts like a built-in cushion, making those pointy edges barely register. Go seal watching and see a bunch of them perched on rocks, scooting into the surf and bobbing in the water — noses to the sky, breathing in the fresh ocean air.
