During this high tide in La Jolla, California, some sea lion pups were afraid of the big waves and strong current. As they sought refuge at the Children's Pool beach area, they were frightened by all the humans that wanted to run up and either take pictures with them or try to pet them. As they tried to keep their distance, some of the more powerful waves simply pushed them on shore. I patiently waited in my position and this little guy appeared to be trying to run towards me to get away from the big bad waves. He was doing fine until several people ran over to him to try and get a photo or some sort of sea lion interaction. I went back to visit them the next day and the pups seemed much more prepared and able to deal with those waves.
