Showing Paradise: Part 2 / by Brett Holman

Each evening Liz and I take a break from our computers and get outdoors. It's so much fun to take her around to my childhood hangouts. She's always wanted to see otters in the wild and we were fortunate to have the opportunity see five North American River Otters just off the point of the Paradise Lake island. You should have seen the smile on her face as they swam closer to us, diving under water and coming up with fish in their mouths. It was an amazing experience for me to see her reaction. I have never experienced an otter encounter like that before and it was awesome to be able to share a little more of Paradise with her.
