Went to the Coast Guard Jetty in Monterey about 0700 this Sept 11th and saw this otter on the right hand side of the jetty just getting ready to take a nap it would seem. I have never seen an otter in between the jetty and docks for the boats. Maybe because there are many times lots of sea lions on the rocks of the jetty, but they were not there today.
I love how the kelp seems to be modestly placed across the lap area. Nice surprise to an overcast morning before heading to church.
