Saw an otter yesterday...

Was up at Grand for the past 5 days and make the drive from the house on Grand to the islands at shadow with the grandkids multiple times a day.

I tell them the ospreys are looking to peck their eyes out if they've been bad.

Anyway, I alway lie to them,

making up things on a regular basis, like the rock sticking out the water by the bridge is an alligator....

well yesterday, heading from shadow to Grand, just as I'm getting ready to go under the bridge we spot an otter trying to cross the channel. He turns back halfway and heads for shore where we were able to confirm the sighting as we watched him run a short distance under the bridge. Lucky my wife was on the boat or otherwise the rest of my family wouldn't have believed me.

I remember seeing them up there once in a great while when I was a kid. They always looked so happy and playful, really cute critters. They'd always disappear before anyone figured out what they were up to. They'd take the fish off everyone's stringer!
