Watery Wednesday at Morro Bay

Here I have gotten a bit ahead of my narrative but Morro Bay is much better than Pinnacles for watery photos.

Here is another photo of the lazy sea otter. It's not as good a picture of the otter as my earlier post but I like the reflection of the boats in the water.

More boats at the marina with reflections.


I don't think this is the same boat as was in the movie but you never know. It is certainly colorful!

Hi, Martha
These are spectacular! I've not yet posted to WW but I read your comment for one of my entries to another meme (can't remember which one!) and came by to say hello and thanks for stopping by!

PS. That is quite an adventurous looking rock climbing photo. My first husband was intensely into climbing and I was a climbing widow! ;-)

Aw, I saw only: that otter is too cute!!! Why do otters melt my heart so much? Don't know why, just that they do! Sooooooo cute! :-D You could post an otter every day and I would not get tired of them!

I missed the otter last time, so I'm glad you caught him again.

Great series of photos. Guess I'm the odd one out, I like the African Queen best. Perhaps it's because I loved the movie.

I used to do research on sea otters in Washington State and in the Aleutian Islands. They are among my favourites of the sea.

I sure like the reflections too - that otter looks like he's having a good time too!!!

Tash said...

He is sooooo cute. Many yrs ago, we spend 2 1/2 hrs watching the otters play at the Monteray Aquarium. First they were chasing each other, then came feeding time - they are like puppies of the ocean. Another lovely group of photos.

Hi Martha :)

Greetings!

These are excellent photos taken with great expertise and skill.

Otter is something which we never see in our part of the world. He appears to be happy in the water and not even worried that a stranger is taking his photo. Perhaps he is used to humans. The shadows and light reflecting in the water in the first photo is very special and unique.

In the third photo the boat is named African Queen. I wonder what made the owner give that name to the boat. May be he has some fond memories of Africa.

Have a nice day, Martha :)

The sea otter looks as if it hasn't a care in the world, and I find the reflections in the water mesmerizing.

I found you thrugh Lilac gate. I love your photos and you and I live close enough to be distant neighbors. I grew up in Atascaderao and Morro Bay and my son and I take trips to Monterey often. I'm not as enamored of the otters as others may be mostly becasue they are very destructive little guys in that they strip the area they live in of all rock fish, ie: abalone. They are actually more to blame for the lack of abalone on the west coast than people. I grew up spending Saturday early mornings on the beach while my parents dug for clams and my dad dove for abalone and fish. Now you have to go north of Mendocino to dive for abalone and it's not for the faint of heart. The rocky shores and wild waves can be deadly for anyone other than a very strong swimmer. You probably don't want me to go on and on about otters. Sorry.
I do like your blog and enjoyed the photos of your trip. I haven't been "home" in a long time so the photos of Morro Bay, the Rock and Carissa Plains was comforting to me.
