Weekly Photo Challenge: Dreamy

??????????

From Española.

Galápagos sea lions (Zalophus wollebaeki) are plentiful on the islands’ picturesque beaches.  Doesn’t this seem like a great place to curl up?

The Galápagos sea lions were thought to be a subspecies of the California sea lion (Zalophus californianus), but genetic studies have supported their classification as their own species.  Visually, they look closely related, and they are still in the same genus.  They are native to the islands, and also have been seen at other nearby islands, such as Isla de la Plata and Isla del Coco.

    This makes me think of Riven, like there should be some kind of a clue hidden by the water’s edge maybe.
