Loud Honking Noise

By tonyguitar
These two are belting out the usual loud song. Often sounds like ' Honk Honk '. One Lion will honk....Can I come up on deck? The answer is Always a loud ' NO ' and when they scrap they sink teeth into each other's neck. You can see the marks here.
These flesh wounds are very common and never seem to bother them at all. Guess the salt water prevents infection.

Thank you Isabel. The rest of Canada is dealing with snow and suddenly our wet streets began turning white with snow around 2pm this afternoon. That is very much ' Unkosher ' for our Vancouver Island at this time of year.
Your Award has come at just the right time. I needed that! Thanks again. TG

Colleen, Thank you for your generous Award and support. Our most recent snow is melting away fairly well and the forecast is for more normal 7 to 10C instead of being stuck at an abnormal 0C. Things are looking up at long last. Thanks again Colleen. TG
