A weekend or two ago (I dunno, I barely know the day these days...they all blur into one) my good pal Laura popped up to visit for the day so I could meet her new other half. We ended up heading out to Eyemouth for a bit. It's only 15mins from mine but is a good change of scenery and I always enjoy a walk around the harbour.
We ended up feeding the seals, having a wander and watching the fishing boats come in. I took a few photos so thought I'd share them. Time is short just now so I didn't edit them more than cropping and watermarking so yeah, sorry not sorry. :)
You might see from the photos, one of the seals' eyes look different. That's because he's blind and actually can't see the fish. When feeding them you had to make a noise, splashing the fish for him, so he could get to it!
There were 3 seals there that day but the blind guys got the majority of the feed. The little guy on the first photo after the text is a young one who didn't even attempt to come over for food - I assume he's a little intimidated by the big guy. Then there is the chillest dude, the one who looks like he's sleeping in the photo with the young gull. Those two guys were clever and waited until the fishing boats came in, followed them and got some scraps from the fishermen. It's always a joy seeing the seals and although we get them in Berwick too, we don't have a designated point to feed them like Eyemouth. Apparently, Laura had never seen seals in the wild either so that was cool.
We ended the trip with a quick whizz round the arcade. Has to be done when you're at the seaside! It was a good day.
