come to an end however and it was probably my inability
to follow him into the sea that eventually caused my new found
friend to take himself off sea-ward probably in search of a

A wonderful memory
of a real connection with a wild animal in its natural environment.
Why he decided to try and play like this I'm not sure, but it
was towards the end of my time in Antarctica and I'd probably
learned a lot more fur seal body-language than I realised.
