Sea lions wake up on the docks Thursday morning near the boat launch area at the Oceanside Harbor.
Sea lions have invaded the Oceanside Harbor, to the consternation of people who dock their boats or work at the harbor.
"They're coming up on the landings, and they're making a huge mess," said Tammy Taunt, who has moored a 20-foot sailboat at the harbor with her husband since 2007.
Those who live on their boats say the noisy animals have ruined the placid atmosphere of their harbor.
