There were good spirits on Rodeo Beach in the Marin Headlands Monday where the Marine Mammal Center released a healthy sea lion back to the ocean.

Keekee is a juvenile sea lion that was found near death in Monterey Bay on Nov. 5. Veterinarians did a full exam and found Keekee had an intestinal disorder and bite marks. With medication and diet, the sea lion was nursed back to health

At the beach Monday, it took seconds for Keekee to race back to the water, barking all the way.
