KLIPSAN BEACH — A wayward sea lion was found at the corner of 220th and M Street in Klipsan Beach early Thursday morning. Doug Remon, seen here with the sea lion, went to Jack’s Country Store to purchase some food for the exhausted sea lion that neighbor Melanie Grill named “André.” After a couple of hours, officers from the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife came to Andre’s rescue, netted the 100-pound creature, and safely returned it to the shore of the Pacific Ocean, about a mile away.
