We do have lots of river otters living in the bay. We see them almost daily, swimming in front of the lodge, diving for fish, sliding in the snow, or frolicking on the dock. They always seem to be having a good time, but I wouldn't want to run into one on a dark rainy night on the boardwalk!
The otters spend a lot of time on the dock or on the floats under the decking.
That nice rough wood makes a good back scratcher!
"Are you still there on our dock?"
"I'm not eating a fish!"
"I'm not eating this fish either!"

"This should be easy!"
Overcompensation is to be avoided....
...or you will fall off!
To the amusement of the onshore audience!
