Thanks for the definition Fstbttms, I haven't heard that before.

As long as I lived in Encinitas and Cardiff (since high school), I never heard of a haul out in Solana Beach...and I've walked that beach many times...interesting.

The haul out area I am referring to is just south Solana.

However, I just read a bit ago, that a sea lion was found and removed earlier in the week and a seal pup was removed and take to a rescue the morning of the attack, both off Solana Beach.

I never knew that.

Interesting.

Once in a great while walking along the beaches in Encinitas we would come across a lone seal pup, but never saw any adults except just out past the surf line. While surfing we always felt a bit safer when we saw dolphins coming through (don't know if we were really safer), but when we first would see them at a distance we kept an eye on them, never knowing 'exactly' what they were. It's kinda funny that as kids we didn't seem to fear anything while sitting on our surfboards, but if something touched our dangling legs or feet, we sure pulled our feet up fast!

The sea lion had been attacked, missing most of the upper portion from the foreflipper up, unknown is if the pup was injuried at all.

Agreed, as kid, back in the day when Dan Merkel and Arron Chang were contributing photographers, I was trying to break in with Surfing Mag( gave up too soon ) and spent hours upon hours in the water or on the sand with my camera when I wasn't out myself.

Surfed/shot from Coos Bay to South of Ensenada, never gave it much thought until I heard about migations of GW's so I started reading, now I try and read whatever/whenever I can.

Once on the Northside of HB pier I had a 6' thresher go under me, I had no idea until the lifguards met me on the beach, 3 days later something hit and almost remover the tip of my middle finger at San Clemente Pier, again didn't even know it until I was on the beach trying to figure out where the blood was from

But, the scarist places I ever shot from the water was Oxnard ( Misto 49) and the tables tops just north of Torry Pines; The only two place the gave me that werid feeling

Kinda miss those days, as foggy as they were

I think the scarist place I ever surfed was near the opening to a small harbor, somewhere between Waikiki and Pearl...back in the late 60's. Near the end of the day small commercial fishing boats would come back into the harbor, and throw overboard bait and fish parts on their way back in. When you saw the fishing boats coming in, everyone surfing beat feet back to the safety of the beach...sharks would be following the boats.

I kinda miss some of those times too (in my mind), but I would never really want to go back to those days again...being a surf bum had its draw back.
