Sea Otter at Race Rocks

Misery has been off the main island and out of sight since about March 16.  A few female elephant seals have been around, there have been 4 or 5 on Middle rock for the past few days.esealsOn the 26th I saw a Sea Otter off the south side of the island.  It was mostly swimming on its back and at one point had a sea urchin it was eating on its belly. A few seals followed it as it swam towards middle rock.
