Adorable and beyond.  What an exhilarating hour to truly enjoy the majesty of our seals right here in the Seacoast. Be sure to grab your camera and binoculars.

Witnessing these harbor seals resting on badger rocks, swimming or lounging on the beach is unique in itself. The sight is most common in the winter and early spring along the Seacoast.

Beth Robson from Ipswich was on the last walk organized by the Merrimack River Watershed Council in Massachusetts and Seacoast Science Center in New Hampshire.  It was a misty and foggy Sunday in Salisbury Beach, where the seals basked in that day's easygoing and mild weather.

Beth was camera-ready for this incredible seal encounter, and took many of these incredible photos.  She told me she'd do this again in a heartbeat and cannot recommend it enough:

Well, of course being able to see the seals was one of my favorite parts, but learning about them while photographing them at the same time was too.  To have people like the researchers out in the filed hosting events like this is so wonderful. We are so lucky to have events like this in our own back yard, so to speak.

According to the Seacoast Science Center and the Merrimack River Watershed Council, our harbor seals love being right on the Merrimack River where it meets the Atlantic, so it's a perfect seal watching location.

Harbor seals "hurl" themselves on the rocks known as the Badger rocks at low tide to rest, sleep, and nurse. They will move out to the Isle of Shoals once the warmer weather comes, due to the increased boating activity.
Although there's not a specific date set yet, the Merrimack River Watershed Council and Seacoast Science Center is planning its next guided seal walk in the first two weeks of April.
