The Lively Sea Otter

Hannah provided the inspiration for this Sea Otter when she shared with me pictures of Sea Otters with frolicking with their babies. This little otter can snuggle a sea otter pup, or a clam shell. I provide both with this pattern.

Hannah went to the beach with me today to photograph the sea otter. Fifty-five degree and we waded knee deep in the water experimenting with the otter. I carefully pinned a piece of foam to its back. The plan was to snap pictures while she floated amongst the seaweed. It worked until a tiny wave sucked her under; after that, she was top heavy and kept capsizing. We finally settled and a shallow tidepool for her photo shoot.  Hope you enjoy her!
