Strikes a pose for the tourists at Pier 39.

Absolutely beautiful. The skin is so sleek looking. Are they as plentiful and as pesky as I've heard?

I think they're pretty much adored by everyone. There may have been a bit of a discussion when they first overtook the marina because they are in the high rent district but the boat owners just moved to a different area nearby and peace seems to be exist between the sailors and sea lions.
You can smell them a block away, though!

I should say, though, that I don't actually live in The City. Perhaps the nearby residents think differently about the sea lions, but people in the bay area in general tend to be huge advocates for animals.
