Early one morning his past September I'm fishing a back-bay in mid-coast Maine out of a canoe.
I got my arms rested on the gunnels and I'm just sitting there quietly picking out a "wind knot" when I hear this heavy breathing coming from right next to me.
I turn to see a seal's face right at my elbow....Close enough that it could have licked me.
Needless to say, I screamed like a little girl
The little guy just wanted to play. They're like that.
