6 Shhh! Don’t Wake the Babies!

As part of Becky’s April Bright Square Photo Challenge over at The Life of B. I’ve opened the archives to January 2020 to share our 19 day trip to USA. Join me on a pictorial travelogue of the best and brightest of our pre-pandemic adventures in California and Nevada! The rules of the challenge are simple: most photos must be square and fit the theme word bright. Look for #brightsquare.

We were up bright and early to see this raft of sea otters in Morro Bay Harbor.

The mothers and babies were gathered together in the sheltered waterway, seemingly oblivious to the spectators on the dock. Sea otters have no blubber and rely on their thick fur to stay warm. It may have been a cool and cloudy morning, but they floated serenely on their backs like sunbathers, hoping to soak up any heat from the sun.

  1. oh what an extraordinary experience – I have seen otters in the wild but never a family. Simply marvellous – not sure I would have been able to drag myself away! They are one of my favourite mammals, if not the favourite

  3. You got such excellent shots of them. I love the close up of the baby. Fabulous! 🙂 It’s funny how much we take for granted when we can see something whenever we want. I haven’t seen any pictures like that from our trip. I remember seeing them, too. Thanks for sharing this trip. It is an amazing experience to live it over again through someone else’s eyes. 🙂
