Swim with the Otters!?!


A request came in from a guest booking Cabin Fever.  She said they were flying out from Minnesota to “swim with the otters”.  I thought it was a typo.  I didn’t know anything about being able to swim with otters in Valley Center.  So, I googled it.  Sure enough, right down the road in Valley Center at Nurtured by Nature, you can

Dig with the armadillos,
Hop with the kangaroo,
Hang out with the sloth,
Cuddle with the porcupine,
And swim with the otters!

They have a pretty interesting website and have also been a been a part of making dreams come true through the Make a Wish Foundation.  Fascinating way to give back and provide a really unique experience with animals.

Another fun thing to add to my bucket list!  How about YOU?
