This kayaker has the best paddle when an otter hitches a ride.

There's nothing more relaxing than enjoying the sunshine and fresh air while paddling a kayak.

But when an otter suddenly appears, flopping itself down clumsily at your feet, your leisurely paddle just went from memorable to monumental.

That's exactly what happened to Bob Resnik's daughter July 25 while she kayaked Monterey Bay's Moss Landing.

As you're about to see, the moment truly was heartwarming.
