How the otter half lives
Speaking of being stuck inside, Adventure Journal brings you several ways to get outside enjoying nature, at least vicariously. And what better way to take one’s mind off the world’s problems than watching sea otters at the Monterey Bay Aquarium or wildlife from Romana cavort, oblivious to humankind’s plight?
“Few things help calm the mind like watching animals do their thing. Reminds us that the simple things matter so much. Snacks. Scratching an itch. Rolling around in the grass with goofy look on our faces. Splashing around in rivers. Gulping water on a hot day. They remind us that just plain living is such a damn gift,” reads the story.
