He jumped into the sea and to my relief
I didn't slip on the wet rocks (maybe not the best place to
do it) and become a fur seal chew-toy.
So while I was better on the
land, quicker and more agile, he of course was master in his
element and I couldn't even go there in what I was wearing as
despite it being a relatively warm sunny day, the sea temperature
was at about 0°C.
So he swam about a bit, probably
trying to entice me into the water in a way that worked with
his seal-mates when they get each other to play chasing games
in the sea. I read this picture as a "well you couldn't even
catch my tail flippers" type of message, then waving the flippers
at me as a taunt.
