We enjoy a good little paddle. And lucky for us, there's water everywhere (Humboldt Bay is half a mile from our place!). That's the marina above (obviously). It's a prety little spot with lots of sea lions and seals, sometimes otters. Everyone loves marine mammals! This sea lion was pretty content on one of the docks, sleeping pretty hard. That's part of the Eureka waterfront below. The freaks tend to stay away from the downown area, which is a good thing because it's a pretty cool spot. All these pictures are from Humboldt Bay.
Zac sees birds!
These little otter friends were at the Arcata Marsh. There were two families who we watched for about an hour - playing and snarfing a bunch of feeshes. Otters are great! One of the babies couldn't quite walk very well yet and was dragging his back legs through the mudflats. His family came back to wait for him, awww!
