A nice video

Because I’ve been busy with many other things, and South Africa has been busy with talking about e-tolls, I haven’t got round to blogging until now. And even now, I don’t have a huge amount of time to blog.

So have a nice video:

Here’s the blurb:

Just off the north coast of Cornwall, I’m filming a swarm of blue jellyfish when a grey seal comes to play. The water’s clear and calm so neither of us are as worried as we would usually be. He seems quite playful but not threatening in any way, just mouthing at my fins a bit. As I stroked him he put his fin around my arm (29 seconds in) and held on while he investigated my mask (or admired his reflection maybe!)

It’s nice that people in the UK can enjoy this sort of interaction with their local seals (although teeth! at 1:03). Here in SA, they seem mainly to try to kill them with bullets and plastic.
