Seals Catching Salmon on the Klamath River

October 16, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Yesterday Jason smelled something plastic burning in the back of the RV, but we thought it was a vehicle we passed.  Latter in the day the RV seemed to be blowing off air pressure louder than usual so we brought it to a NAPA shop this morning and they kept it for the day.  Something plastic burned off some wires and caused the problem so they fixed it and it only cost $200.  Best deal on this trip. 

While the RV was in the shop today we drove down the coast and had some wonderful views since it was such a clear day.  We went to the mouth of the Klamath River and looked down form a very high scenic view pull out and saw many seals laying on the beach and some were in the surf catching Salmon.  We then drove to the other side of the mouth and Jason and I walked along a very long tall spit of course sand.  One side of the spit was the Pacific Ocean with the waves crashing against the shore and the other side was a calm inlet area.  Numerous gulls, terns, grebes, brown pelicans, and assorted shore birds sat on the sand.  Harbor Seals basked on the shore and Sea Lions swam in the surf hunting for Salmon.  It was very interesting to watch the seals surf on the waves and often when they came up with a fish the gulls were all over them fighting over the fish.
