The Magician

One sunny day, light rays danced underwater at the Coronado Islands. I went to an area where I knew they would be beautiful to see if there were any California sea lions. Not long after my arrival, one pup appeared and danced in front of me. At one point she stuck up her flipper and all the light appeared to emanate from it almost as if she were magician casting a spell.
