My fluorescent hat

The seals know me well, but only wearing a buff cotton hat. Now it is too cold for that so I wore a bright fluorescent pink and orange fleecy hat. As I approached the dozy seal family stretched out comfortably on the low floating pontoon by the naval college, they suddenly panicked and flopped quickly into the water.

All except the patriarch, but even he was wary, turning his whole body with surprising agility as I floated past on the falling tide.
