SAN DIEGO (AP) â€” A surprising stowaway startled a man out on his boat in San Diego: A sea lion pup who decided to crash in a bunk, waking the owner with his snoring.
Michael Duffy, 48, said he was on his 41-foot Kettenburg boat "Elixir" at the San Diego Yacht Club when he awoke at 2:30 a.m. Sunday to sneezing and snoring.
He thought it might be a friend, crashing from a night out, but couldn't find anyone. Once it got light a few hours later, however, he heard it again.
That's when Duffy saw a 35-pound sea lion pup on another bunk, curled up like a dog on top of his board shorts.

So why not combine our three loves? We tossed some of our favorite summer veggies on the grill, then combined them with the robust flavors of Italian puttanesca, then tossed the whole thing in the food processor to create a wonderfully chunky-smooth gazpacho that is both bold and refreshing.
