Spring is on it’s way. A few more days till the vernal equinox, the calendar says.
This winter won’t let go, Rice Lake is frozen through to the other side.
A cold wind blowing off the wintry lake, we hear the lake moving underneath the ice.
*Splash*,  an otter appears, slipping through a hole in the ice to catch and carry fish to her babies. They nestle underneath the dock. Spring is late this year.

    Hi, We saw the Otter today out side our cottage at Taits Beach Road.
    Do you know where the Otter came from?

      Hi Rob, thanks for the feedback. I’m glad you saw the Otter, I wonder if it’s the same one. I saw a few of them that day. This one had a nest at Gores Landing. Not sure where it came from.
