This unique video is of a tourist who sat on the beach to watch the seals and penguins on Gold Harbor, South Georgia. Unexpectedly, one of the seals is apparently attracted to her and, slowly works his way over. He seems to 'fall in love' and snuggles and flirts with her. It is quite beautiful, sweet and interesting scene. What really moved me when I watched this video was their loving interaction. For that moment in time they were not a human and a seal, but two living creatures exploring and digging each other. A sample of the power of love, completely cross-platform.

The seals are huge (6,000 lbs), yet the woman never seemed afraid...more amused...while someone shot the video of this incident. I would like to think that instead of fear, she kept her heart open, and the seal felt it.

Gold Harbor, South Georgia, is located off the southern tip of South America. (sub arctic) It is a small bay five miles S-SW of Cape Charlotte, with Bertrab Glacier at its head, along the east end of Georgia. The west end of the beach where a glacial stream flows is a breeding ground for various types of penguins and large seals.
It is not a frequent destination for tourists.


  1. Amazing. The power of love indeed. Thank You.

  2. Love at first sight...

  3. Animals feel our own feeling... that's what we lost...

  4. I LOVE THIS. I want to live with the seals! Contrast this with the horror that is the baby seal slaughter each year in Canada. Those people should be hanged.

  5. I would have hugged the seal so much!
    the cute she was !!!

  6. I bet the seal was heartbroken when the tourist went back home... ;)
