Yesterday was the first time since January 25th that the temperature was warmer than normal. And this baby seal was all about those above-40 temps.

The seal was spotted slinking up the sand by a park ranger on Sunday morning, like a spring breaker swimming up to an empty pool barstool while everyone else is still sleeping off last night's keg stands.

Once the seal got that prime real estate, it settled in for the day—here, you can see the seal at the tail-end of the afternoon, drunk on sun. Storing up warmth to battle through the rest of winter. Giving hope to us all. But sure as this seal will be eaten by a shark by the end of next week, we'll forget all about yesterday's warmth, as winter continues to crush us.
