Unreliable advice informs us that seals may raise their flippers towards the sun to warm the blood flowing through the web of capillaries close to the skin's surface
This seal was easily the highlight in what was otherwise a rather dull grey day at sea. Other notable events included Tony paddling through a zone of "boiling" water near the Sphinxes and pulling in a salmon, and Luke doing an upside-down inspection of the reef at Fairy Bower after getting side-on to a breaking wave.
From the Heads to Long Reef and back (with short stops at Butter Box and Shelly Beach) we covered 18.4 nautical miles / 34.07 kilometers.
