But it’s a family! Fishing! Our local five otter family, that I’ve seen before, pictures here and here. I can’t tell who is an adult and who is a child now, they are all pretty much the same size. They were swimming along and catching fish, heads tilted up to eat when they surfaced.
These are river otters, even though they are fishing in the Salish Sea.
And why putrescent? Oh, they are delightful to watch, but they can leave some very putrescent gifts on the dock or in the boats….
Our rock sitter is not a seal: an otter. We see at least 5 otters in groups of one and two while we are hiking. These are river otters even though they are on Puget Sound. They can make a terrible mess in a boat, but they swim with such joy.
On Christmas day, my daughter and I went for a beach walk. Another family was out, swimming initially, but they climbed up on the dock. Otterly sleek and busy and quick, hard to photograph! I used my big camera with the serious zoom… one is already back in the water.
