Busy day along Alki for seal pups

Seal Sitters responded to hotline reports of two seal pups early this morning - one at the north end of Alki Beach and another a few minutes later of a pup on the beach steps across the street from Bamboo restaurant. The first pup was scared into the water before our responder could confirm if it was Spencer; however, we suspect it may have been.

Below the thankfully deserted promenade, our responder located the second pup a few steps up from the water. Despite very windy conditions, she was able to establish a tape perimeter on the sidewalk above the exotic, dark-coated pup so that no one could enter the steps leading to the beach, scaring him away. The pup had apparently hauled out on the steps at high tide last night.

Volunteers watched over the pup throughout the day as he settled into a deep slumber. Nicknamed JoJo by young sisters Samantha and Katelyn (hopefully, future Seal Sitters) from Sammamish who were visiting the beach with their dad, the pup finally returned to the Sound around 2pm.

A third unidentified pup rested on the offshore platform for most of the day.
