Ahoy, maties! That Yacht Looks Fine.
California sea lions, those very large and very loud pinnipeds (fin-footed mammals) that populate our coast and love to be where people are also enjoy having their photos taken (we think). Quite loquacious, raucous even, they call out to us from their No. 1 sunshine buoy as we pass by on a private luxury sea tour of the Los Angeles coastline, departing in our private yacht from Marina del Rey and sailing past Venice and Santa Monica up to Malibu. The celebrities in the beach front homes we see along the way do not call out to us, generally.
