    Ah! I saw the same fox but in the morning. And I described the deer as like dogs, they were so tame. But I’m so envious you saw an otter. That is one sight I missed. Lovely place, isn’t it? I was there working on essays about being an urban naturalist. Somewhat ironic.

    I felt pretty good about spotting that otter, I must say! It really is a lovely place. Must have been perfect for your writing retreat.
