The seals at the beach, called the Children’s Pool, are safe for now. This is something I’ve wished for, many years. Aside from the airport, this has probably been the most divisive issue in the city.
People say that Mrs. Scripps, the donor would turn in her grave if there were seals, rather than children, in that pool. Truth is they closed the sluice gates decades ago and this cove is no longer fit for kids.
Seals have their babies up there and are now granted five months per year for pupping season.
I worked for six years to get other things done as a volunteer on a similar issue before the city council. All I can say is that kudos are due to everyone involved. Bravo. You are an ispiration to our city, nation and world. Cheers! Dee
