Ben's first swim in the ocean. He had a great time, drank lots of water, chased lots of birds, and attacked those pesky waves. He did come back after the video ended, he's good about that, not a runner, thank goodness. The thing I missed was as soon as the video ended he found a rather deep hole and fell in, we definitely learned after that that he could swim =)
We also saw a lot of seals and after realizing that they are carnivorous and had an unusual interest in Ben, we didn't let him swim out after we noticed that!
Yes there are eight seals in the water probably 15 feet off shore, a little too close for comfort with out little four legged buddy.
