A Place of Deep Mud or Mire

We borrow Topher’s truck and head south to Elkhorn Slough, which is pronounced slew as in, “As he was valiant, I honour him. But as he was ambitious, I slew him.” We have  a boat, we have an outboard that works, what else do you need?

We cruise up and down the Slough and out towards the ocean. The place is heaving with wild things.

There are so many Sea Otters, which do not seem to mind you being there as long as you are polite.
