16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Relaxing with the Girls (California Sea Lion)

I watched a sea lion show at a pet expo in Costa Mesa, CA, in late April 2018. At the end of the show, little kids starting posing for photographs with the sea lions. I noticed that there were two little girls who seemed to be cherishing every moment that they were there, with a sea lion.
