We ran into these Bad Boys along the waterfront (Pier 36) in Astoria OR.  They weren’t hard to find.  We heard them barking and honking from well over a quarter of a mile away!  All we had to do was follow the sound.

Don’t believe me?  Check out this video by hermenutic and I’m sure you’ll agree they make quite a racket.

Though sea lions can be found up and down the Pacific NW coast, you don’t always score an opportunity like this to get up-close-and-personal with the loveable brutes.  So this was an unexpected treat.

These particular Bad Boys had taken over the docks at the East Mooring Basin Marina which is located at the intersection of 36th Street and Leif Erickson Drive.  Ample parking available for anyone who, like us, might be lured to the area by the “call of the wild”.
