2014 Walrus

From time to time a walrus poked his head out of the water and had a look at us, but the only time we got close was at the colony on Pollepynt.

We met Sillage, an French boat with same hull as ours, but quite different rig and below decks.
The walrus are remarkably tame, and easy to approach.
They let you know their comfort zone with a quick, but not dangerous lunge with the tusks.
