HIGH END SQUATTERS

It seems there's a problem with squatters in the high rent area of Newport Beach California. Yeah, all of Newport Beach is high rent, but when you claim a spot right on the bay, ten feet from someone's bedroom window, and your mere presence makes it official that no one can force you to leave......then it's saaaawwweeeet baby!

This is the Harbor, actually a long channel, with million dollar oceanfront mansions on both sides...with their yachts, sailboats and catamarans. I love that word catamaran...it just rolls off you tongue like teriyaki, or guacamole.


Here are the chosen few...the elite, the privileged.....


That's right these seals, or sea lions, were tired of being shunned, relegated to a bell buoy. What the hey? Like didn't God make the seas and the oceans for them? isn't it their home?


So what's the harm if we sun on the deck of your catamaran. So what if we bring all our fiends to partay.

So what if we keep you up all night with our barking and snorting. We know we are protected. That's what the rules say. You can't come up to us and say "shoo, shoo, cute little seal". No you can't....and you can't gently prod us with a stick or broom or kayak paddle.


And if you see us pile on and sink your boat....oh well, maybe you should have bought a BIGGER BOAT. Now please, can't we all just get along?

Your red bathing suit is just exquisite. You tread water very well, too. Watch out for boaters, sometimes they drink and drive and don't pay attention to where they're going. I do not speak from personal experience.

Awwwwwwwww. They are so cute. I agree! That word just floats off your tongue. I think you need a catamaran.

How sweeeeeetttt.
I agree, God made the ocean for the ocean creatures, not our sailboats. BTW, you should not put pictures of my boat and home on the web with out prior permission. ;0

I have to admit if they were right outside my window, they might be annoying, but they sure were cute to watch when I was in San Francisco last year.

So the big trip is just around the corner, you must be getting excited.

Be careful out there Grandma J. Those sea lions might fight you for a space on that catamaran!

BTW - your hair looks fabulous:)

Those seals look quite comfy.
I'm glad you don't wear a bikini.

Jason said...

You swam with them? Wow. For a minute there I thought that was you in your community pool at home.

Pumpkin Delight said...

Haha! That is funny. They are so cute, I'd let them on my boat.

Are you in Cali right now?

the only problem with those puppies is they stink.. I've walked around that area before..CRAZY how close everyone is to each other.

What an enjoyable read. So funny - the comparison of words... and your picture insertion into the water. I'm cracking up!!
