Sharing a Sunny Low Tide Otter Kind of Morning


It's been a busy time at the house, spring brings so many outdoor clean up projects and the alternating days of rain and sun make for lots of weeds.  This Monday morning, after a weekend of rain, the sun was out, the tide was low, the water still and there were otters in the cove.


                                          
                        In the center of the kelp bed lay a mother otter 
and her nursing pup.


Further out in the cove several otter were diving for breakfast.


The kelp itself was a lovely sight.


 Here is my very zoomed in close up.... I'll try to tuck my camera in a pocket and  try again soon to share the glimpses  I get of my western neighbors and their dynamic abode.

It's so nice to catch up a bit with The Cove! ...and you, watching the cove. I believe you, that the otters are there.

My first grade class use to enjoy a book called ... Otters, The Happiest Animals on Earth. I don't know if they are really happy, but they are cute.

Fondly,
Glenda

Fantastic, I wish I had your views and the ability to look out on the ocean and see the life within it. Thank you so much for the pictures.

Aaaahhhhhhh! Lovely, lovely place to rest and read. I am in a flowing dress but have spent the day in the kitchen making mayo and hummus and more. It's so good to pause for a visit with you to delight in seeing that the Hand of God that made all the gorgeous flowers in my garden was a fabulous multi-tasker making beauty among/along the seaside.

Oh, how I do miss the seashore . . . Thank you for posting beauty to share. I soak it up and smile.

Thanks!
