We took the canoe out for another spin over the weekend. It was actually my first time on the pond. Yes, after living here for a year and a half, I still had not been on the pond. Of course now I think a spin in the pond needs to be a weekly ‘thing’.
The best part was on our way back I caught something out of the corner of my eye sliding down the bank. We have a beaver on the pond and I noted that it the animal definitely did not have a paddle shaped tail and I thought it was an otter instead. Then, seconds later, another one slide down, and both were now under water. When they surfaced Chris got a glimpse of the face as it peeked up out of the water and agreed that they were otters! Sweet! I doubt we’ll see them down our way in the open pond, but you never know!
