This months story is based (loosely) on a true story!

It all started EARLY in the morning when Mama woke me up for a photo shoot and walk at the Arcata Marsh. I was realllllly tired and really didn't want to go, but Mama insisted.

Come on Mama, let's go!!!
We decided to walk along the lake because it was such a pretty day!

There are lots of beautiful flowers at the Marsh. These white lacey ones,

Purple clover ones.....

Hey Mama...did you hear that???

It came from out there somewhere!!!

Look Mama....it's a River Otter!!

 OMD...Can I Mama???

Mama said I could go as long as I was careful!! Did you know you can see lots of pretty flowers from an Otter's back??

Little pink flowers....

and wild berry blossoms

not to mention lots of wild flowers!!!

These pretty pink sweet peas are everywhere!

Just look at all lovely marsh flowers!!

WOW...that was the first time I ever rode on the back of an Otter...he was such a nice guy and made sure I didn't get wet or splashed at all!!

Bye Bye Mr. Otter, thanks again!!!

Wow Mama, that was loads of fun!!!

The morale of this story is although you might be tired, going for walkies is ALWAYS fun!!!

OMD Dory the adorable got an otter-ride - were there many petrol fumes??? (in Mumbai the little putt-putt taxis are called autos, but to my initially untrained ear it sounded like 'otter'!!!) You certainly spotted lots of beautiful on your ride. Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

WOW!! I've never ridden on an otter! That's so exciting. I agree, you NEVER know what will happen on walkies.

Mr. Otter really gave you a good tour of all those flowers! How lucky you are!

Wowzers! We have never seen a real life otter! What an incredible adventure and the flowers are so pretty. ☺

Bouncing Bertie said...

What a wonderful ride. Of course we knew an otter had to be a nice guy, they are so beautiful and swim so gracefully.
Lucky you Dory!

We have never even seen an otter. You sure were a lucky girl Miss Dory.

We've seen mink on our walks by the Erie Canal but never an otter. We love seeing all the wild flowers that are on our walks.
