LAGUNA BEACH – Two inseparable sea lions got their very own Valentine’s gift this morning – a return to the freedom of the open sea.

    Awww.

    I couldn’t tell from the article what gender Makia is, though. I hope it’s female, otherwise they might end up competing and that would be sad.

  22. Von Zep, I laughed until I gasped! So perfectly Norm, if only they had little plaid shirts for se lions.
