Wakarusa Wetlands river otters or beavers?

I saw these two playing in the water near the pergola this morning. The photos are terrible as it was early and very foggy. What seemed different was how they seemed to be playing like otters play and how they kept rising up out of the water to look at me. I tried to get pictures of that, but they were just too fast. Perhaps it is just wishful thinking on my part, but it sure would be neat if we had a couple of river otters back there (and maybe even these two making more). 🙂 If anyone can id them with these poor photos, that would be wonderful.
