Keith the (lazy) seal tries to hitch a ride on a paddle board


Via Arbroath

“It was amazing. We were paddling along when all of a sudden I heard this sound, like heavy breathing. I looked back, and was shocked to see a cute grey seal staring back at me. It was really friendly and tame – it swam right up to my board, and started playing with us. It nipped my paddle and then tried to climb onto my board – I had to go down on my knees because I didn’t want the little critter toppling me in.
