Walking down the waterfront in Vancouver after lunch at Kitaro, I had one ‘city-boy’ moment after another.
We saw this guy gutting a fish down by the marina. I was annoyed that he was just chucking the bits he didn’t want back into the water. With this gorgeous view around me, it ticked me off a bit that this guy was littering like that.
Then I jumped a little when I saw a blur under the water.

He wasn’t littering, he was feeding the local wildlife. Apparently, there are tons (literally) of sea lions that live in the area and share the water with all the boats and planes that use it daily.
A crowd had gathered to watch and one of the other tourists tried to get in on the action. That was all well and good until the sea lion got a bit friendlier than expected:
