Dock Pets

Walking down the dock as we came home from the ocean yesterday, Brock heard a noise & turned around to find this guy:

Large beaver, totally unconcerned with us, just hanging out by the lake edge. I do miss the harbor seals that I had in the slough, but between this guy and the kingfisher that lands on the rail next to us every morning, I still have some wildlife around. And they’re better than domesticated pets any day! Self-sufficient is good…

    How lovely! needless to say I too had Beavers and boy do they work we had an enclosuer with two lage ponds one a little highe than the other and almost daily we would have to smash down their dam and provide them with more logs etc just to keep them happy. they never did getnused to our seasons and that there was no real need to build the dams to keep the water in :o)) I love beavers!rodents that they are.
