Oregon is for Foodies… Just ask the Sea lions.

January 11th, 2010

It looks like the word about Oregon’s food scene has even got around to the pinnipeds (that’s science-geek for seals and sea lions). You may have heard about the disappearance of the famous sea lions from Pier 39.  The thousands that use to laze about and entertain tourists on Pier 39 back in the summer have now been whittled down to just a few dozen at most. Scientists were at first puzzled by their disappearance, but recently solved the mystery. Apparently the sea lions, like other San Francisco Area foodies before them, have traveled north to sample Oregon’s fresh local food scene. They are apparently planning on spending the winter right outside of Florence. (Or until the sardines run out!)
