Sea otter cameo

The promised otter pictures. (The computer is being quite insistent that they post mostly backwards, sorry.)

Peeking out from under its blankie.

Nope nope nope not getting up.

Alright, I’ll get up (dragging its blankie behind the rock for safekeeping.)

Looking more like Smokey the Bear.

You talking about me? (I’m thinking of Don as I type that–that is so something he would have said.  I miss him, and if you read this, Cliff, I hope things are going well for you.)

Smoothing its fur against the glass on its way by as the camera tries to keep up.

Giving us a good look at its flippers.

Side notes: sea otters tend to keep their paws above water to keep them warm because that’s the only part of them that isn’t well insulated and they hold paws when they want to keep from getting separated in the current.

We gotta hold hands and stick together in this whorled.

Thanks for the pictures. I particularly love looking at sea otter pictures, partly because those dark dark eyes looking out of a lighter colored face can remind me of my own Mr. Scruff. The fact that Scruff hates water makes no difference in my mind’s eye.

Glad you’re having a good time.

It’s a bit strange, but I have to tell you that I think of Don quite a bit. I never met him, of course, except through his comments here. So that’s when I think of him — when there’s something posted that you could probably predict the type of comment he might write. Still, it’s a bit strange to me. And fascinating about how people’s influence really is felt so widely out in the world. We never know who is “hearing” us.

Sea otters are one of my favorite animals. They have such sweet faces and I love to watch their antics in the water. I could spend hours watching them swim.
