A journalist in Antarctica meets an elephant seal pup

This is a delightful video. The journalist's glee as the pup snuggles, "remarkable", he says. Indeed.

Oh, Jenn, that was awesome. The journalist was absolutely right in not touching the young seals, even though they wanted to play with us.
When we were in the Galapagos Islands, baby sea lions were everywhere, and wanted to play with people. Dick was entranced. He wanted so much to play with them, and it was all I could do to remind him of the rules we had agreed to.
But the "babies" in this video were larger than the man, which made it extra special. Those sweet baby faces on the huge elephant seal bodies brought tears to my eyes.
Luv, K

I love the photos of Daisy with the red chair, and your husband and Sadie on the lake ice.

This is so beautiful. I don't know if it's good to interact with creatures in the wild or let them alone, but this is heartwarming.
