Oh, you are so beautiful on this wintery morning - looking out of my office, view of the towering white and grey Capitol Dome that sits atop the Maryland State House, newly refurbished and spruced up, the largest wooden dome built without any nails in the United States.  

In the same skyline is the US Naval Academy's exquisite copper dome that sits atop the magnificent Chapel, dating back to 1908, open to the public in the grounds of the US Naval Academy.

No these aren't rocks, these are dozens of beautiful, magnificent seals basking in the sun, peaceful, undisturbed, protected - loving their seal life on the gorgeous beaches of Pacific Grove, California.  I fell in love - they lie there dozing warmly, lifting their tails and heads as the waves roll in, and then resting again as the cold water recedes.
