EWA BEACH (KHNL) -- Residents of an Ewa Beach neighborhood off Oneula Place found a visitor resting in the sand Monday morning.
A monk seal decided this beach was a great place to enjoy a nap.
Beachgoers let the seal relax undisturbed but no one could resist taking a few pictures before heading on their way.
A KHNL News 8 viewer sent in this See It, Snap It, Send It photo.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration was notified so they could keep track of the seal's activities.
A NOAA representative says the Monk Seal is known as "Kermit" and frequents the south shore around Ewa Beach.
A neighbor was quoted saying, "We are blessed to have such a welcome guest."
