That was a nice swim. Five of us, well four club members and a curious harbour seal!
I was well away from everybody and got a couple of little taps on the knee, like a Labrador having a sniff then a good solid push against my calf that made my ankles knock off each other. I stopped for a look and he was staring at me only a couple of metres away, sniffing hard trying to work out who or what I was
A couple of our party also had "curious inspections" and did a little walking along the beach
I figure as a deadly predator these guys catch fast moving slippery fish so my hands and feet may as well have had a seasoning of salt, pepper and ketchup already on them! If he was going to bite he would have and could have, many times over. Just curious I guess
