We recently visited with friends in Santa Cruz, California. When we're in that part of the state I can't pass up a visit with the sea otters at Moss Landing.
Most of them group together in a "raft", they just lounge around, napping.
Some drift of to groom or chew on their toes.
Others go off for a swim. Dog paddle?
Sea otters weren't the only aquatic mammals, lots of noisy sea lions were piled on the pier.
There were plenty of birds floating in the marina.
A Brown Pelican flew by and just behind him in the water is a grebe.
Moss Landing is well worth a stop if your ever around Monterey Bay. If you find yourself in need of some seafood, Phil's Fish Market and Eatery in Moss Landing is a local institution.
This is my view of our world for the week, to see other views visit Our World, Tuesday, hosted for us by Arija, Gattina, Lady Fi, Sylvia and Sandy.
You'll find the otters here.
Phil's is here.
