The young woman stopped her kayak to admire one of the beauties of nature. She stopped to adore the grace and serenity of a seal, which seemed to delight itself by merrily swimming along. It bathed itself in both the sun's warm rays and the woman's attention. The teal colored water gave the seal an appearance of a black shadow. Yet, it was as graceful as a dolphin and as docile as a puppy. The woman saw nature in one of its most peaceful and placid forms that day. From then on, she will always remember what she had witnessed.
