The Wendel Otter

   Here are some pictures I took on two different days at the same marina.

  Yesterday morning, just before I woke up, I had a really great dream about a job interview. Most of the time, job interview dreams are horrible, anxiety-inducing ordeals. But my dream from yesterday included one of the worlds most endearing animals- the river otter. In my dream, I was applying for a job at the zoo. The zoo decided to interview me. I was being considered for the position of official river otter bath-giver. For my job interview, I got to go into the river otter habitat and give an otter a bath. One of the otters took a liking to me. He had the exact same coloring as my cat Wendel- he was white with a gray patch on his ear and underneath his chin. The Wendel otter stood up on his hind legs and pressed his little paw against my leg. He was non-verbally saying "I'm ready for my bath." Afterward, I felt really good about the interview and was fairly confident I would get the job. I was contemplating my future days spent surrounded by merry and playful river otters when I woke up.
