Somebody decided to take a nap on the boat ramp at Honokohau Harbor in Kona today...

We came in to the harbor for a few minutes between dives today, and one of the boat ramps was taped off. After a closer look, we noticed a monk seal (endangered Hawaiian seal) had decided to take a nap. It was still there after the next dive. There's been a monk seal hanging around the harbor for a while now, this is the first time I've seen it. At some point the state may decide it's getting a bit too comfortable and move it along, but for now it's and interesting sight from time to time.
