City wildlife

This morning I looked out of my hostess' dining room window and gazed across the little bay in the early morning light. I saw movement on a rock near the shore. It was a mother sea otter and her two pups. The little ones watched mum groom her fur and they tumbled around each other. My camera was upstairs. I didn't have time to go up and get it before they went back into the water and swam away. A little later I saw them in the kelp out in the middle of the bay. The bay is surrounded by houses and there were dogs on the beach but the otters didn't seem to care. This is their home.

I didn't capture them in pixels today but maybe I will before I leave. According to my hostess, there are several families of them living nearby and they sometimes come together in a big group. I hope that happens while I am here.
