June 30th Strange decorations on seals

At 4.45 the wind was still 20 knots and 26 knots and stayed around 25 .it was a foggy morning too. Actually the whole day the horn went on and out.

The interesting fact of the day was a seal on a rock we saw with a strange white spot on the side but closed to his mouth and with the binoculars we didn’t know if it was a kind of fishing tackle or a tag …but a pretty big tag! And that when we saw a second one with the same kind of decoration. Guy took a picture and we asked our specialists friends. Gerry confirmed that it was a pretty dangerous fishing flyer. Pretty dangerous actually Gerry told us that there are no dissolvable lines and lure when inside the guts of the sea lions so please tell it around…we need to lobby DFO to make it mandatory.
Yesterday the letters on the aluminum tank needed to be scraped. Done by Guy and I went on with some cleaning, tiding up and sorting out in the main house. After that it was time for me for some watercolor painting.
