Description

This view of La Jolla's Casa Beach sea wall faces northwest. The wall was built in 1931 over rocks which had previously provided natural resting areas for harbor seals. In recent years, the wall has become an ideal viewing platform for observing harbor seal behavior up close. The seals are usually unconcerned about people on the wall but are instinctually skittish and easily flushed into the water if approached or disturbed at beach level. Although enjoyed by many thousands of people, the seal colony is at risk due to a lawsuit which may soon force the city to dredge the beach to evict the seals. (See www.gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id=3846 for another view with more seals)
