Just passing through


Finally got a pic of this little critter coming up the driveway. He and another one just like him have been passing through periodically, on the way up from the beach and disappearing into the mountainside behind us.

Not sure what they’re going up there for. Could be fresh water. Could be an otter sports bar where they watch otter playoff hockey. No idea. I’m guessing they’re sea otters as I’ve seen them frolicking out in the salt water. But they could be regular otters. I’m not an otterologist.

They are not shy, either. They’ll walk right past you, intent on their little otter destination. And if you have a fish in your pocket they’ll probably chase you.

that tail

And look at that tail! That thing looks like a weapon.
