Riding along the river Thames
“Hey, look at those seals,” Russ cried out, pointing towards the low waterline. Seals? In the River Thames estuary? Surely not. I could see four shapes that looked like the usual debris deposited by the receding tide. Logs perhaps, or plastic tanks. I grabbed my longest lens, and even at that range, the objects only mildly resembled large sea-faring mammals. But then one moved; it did that Seal Thing of bending in the midsection, its tail and head simultaneously lifting skywards. Like a fortune-telling fish in a Christmas cracker. They were, indeed, seals!
