Seal Spotting

I lived in Teeside for six years in the late 80’s and never saw a seal at Seal Sands. They’d been driven out by industry.
We visited again two years ago and saw more than thirty sunning themselves on Greatham Creek.
These are some of the Harbour Seal.

Wow! You are lucky to have seen a seal in person, Carrie. I never saw a seal in my life. I only saw it on books and television.

I have to agree with Lotchie. I too have never seen a seal Carrie. Should I have said that, or kept my mouth sealed?

I love this! My grandad use to live by the sea and would always point out the seals to me.

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
