Dead otter

[Not rock pile related]. Saw an otter roadkill. That should be sad, except it was within a few yards of the Lowell connector on Rt 495. I am very happy otters are back, even in this urban area; and he probably was swimming in the same Concord river that passes near my house. When I was a young boy we used to visit Concord and the "Great Meadows" and, at the time, there was a pen with two otters. We watched them play. That pen is long gone but maybe represented a memory of an earlier Concord river; and now it is as if otters were never really gone.
