A Puffinery of Puffins or The Alaskan Sealife Center

By: calpoppy , 6:49 PM GMT on September 11, 2012

Celebrating 10 years on the shore of Resurrection Bay in Seward, AK the Alaskan Sealife Center is a non-profit organization to help Alaskan’s marine animals and birds.

Rehabilitation for injured and orphaned animals is a big part of this organization. With the huge devastating oil spill by Exxon the need for a facility to help the injured animals was realized. The facility cost 55 million to build and the Exxon settlement funds made up 37.5 million. The rest was made up in bonds.

They now have an I Sea U facility for the animals who need round the clock medical care. We were able to view a baby Walrus in the I Sea U when we there. He had is head laying on the attendant ‘s leg. They are very tactile creatures and need to be touched a lot when they are young. Right now there are two baby Walruses, both from Barrow. One was brought down by the U.S. Coast Guard (my son's friend was one of the Coasties) and the other by cargo plane. They are both doing well and gaining weight. One was found when it tried to board a fishing boat!

One of the rescued animals made the national news in July, unfortunately it did not end well. They rescued an orphaned Beluga whale. They have never had success with these guys before. They called in experts from around the country, but without their mothers milk and the antibodies it contains, the little guy succumbed to infection a month later.

The most fun was the Puffin area. What a place to have a great time! The birds are very friendly ( and I was told that some don’t know they are birds). There are no fences to keep you from them and they from you. I could have spent all day there! The kittiwakes were screeching , the duck were sleeping, but the Puffins were doing what Puffins do and that is just being adorably cute! And one little guy, an Oyster catcher I believe, tried to get into a man’s lap who was in a wheelchair. We were told she is about a year old and is incredibly friendly! She finally fell asleep on the rail.

On to the Puffins, Horned Puffins and Tufted

This was the bird who didn't know she was a bird and tried to get into the man's lap!

Do not disturb the duck!

One of my best pics ever!

Here is a mural that I thought was beautiful, they were either re-doing it or actually creating it the day we were there.

I will leave you with a photo of Resurrection Bay. Seward is a beautiful place, maybe to big of town for us but the view doesn't get to much better!!

Not done yet, LOL! Here is someone cuter then a Puffin, Brody!!

A little drool but still cute!

Gotta have Carharts!

Yotes have a hard go of it there, don't they?

There are some feral cats running around outside the plant buildings. I saw a young gray mom and four little ones running about. Every so often they have to trap them and try to give them away to good homes!

As long as you're happily knitting in your corner, that's fine :)

It's called a "hank". Most people wind hanks into balls (because working from the hank directly leads to awful tangles, as you seem to be learning :( ).
You've seen this in old movies - a kid with his/her arms held up, with yarn wrapped around them, and mom or grandma winding a ball from there. It's iconic :)
You can use chair backs or your own feet, too (ask me how I know!) (nevermind - I'll tell you!). I bought 12 hanks at about 200 yds each, have no willing kiddo or appropriately shaped chairs, so propped my feet up and wound a center-pull ball by hand from there. Once. It took an HOUR! Then I went and found and bought a swift and ball winder. No way I'm winding over two thousand more yards that way!
But, for one skein, it's no big deal :)
Glad you like the new yarn and that you're still having fun!

Hi WTS!! No telling what you will do if I ignore you. Lol!!!! You to Ylee!

The coyote pups from this year are all here, they are so adorable!! One poor pup has a leg that just dangles from the knee, but otherwise is healthy. One of the pups is real small, and is very lovable from afar off course. There are 3 of them.

Ahhhhhh! I didn't mean to ignore you SP!!!! I didn't see you there. Bad blog friend, bad!!!! I will go to my corner :((

I like the yarn I am using now EXCEPT it is not coming off the what ever you call it not a skein, it is long and loosely wrapped. Any way it gets all bound up. Other then that I love it, it knits up very nicely.

That's okay, calpoppy. Just ignore me. Sure, I try to be amusing but it doesn't always work out well. It's fine. I'm not hurt. *sniffle*

Llano's forecast temps are better than Escondido's (not much worse than mine) so I hope you don't suffer too much. Your freezing temps will be along soon enough!

Hey cp, A couple days ago, local weather folk were getting excited about Miriam bringing rain to San Diego. I checked WU this morning, no rain on horizon - but - next Monday my forecast is 109 and Tuesday 118! Awesome, Fall is here! I am sure the forecast is right :)
Weather has been very nice this week, mid low 80s.
Hi sp, I am sure you appreciated all the 'help' from your 'lapdoggie' :)

Thanks Ylee!

My kids are stuck in Anchorage after their long flight from Ohio. Storm in Kodiak. It is never easy to get to Kodiak, with all the bad weather they won't take off or land if the visibility is bad. It may not clear until Friday, luckily Brody is a great traveler!!!!! When we flew to Kodiak there were so many people who were stuck in Anchorage that they cheered when the plane took off and again when it landed!!! Kodiak to me has a very short runway and I always envision the pilot standing on the brakes to get the plane to stop, LOL!

Hi Ylee! You had frost!! Yea! I am really looking forward to that, though today is wonderful at 81 degrees!

OGal, thanks for the info!!! I can see why Cooper Landing could flood, the river is very close to all the cabins and guide fishing places. They had a snowy winter and now a very rainy summer, what more can happen?
I feel bad for all the young guides, they count on work into October. But on the other hand they are probably tired and want to go spend some of their hard earned cash.

No new blog, you all have heard that before from me. Best layed plans have gone astray, because Mr. P and I took a hike. We saw 4 deer about 1 1/4 miles from our place. That was really cool, they were checking out the area that caught on fire from the lightening strike at the end of August.

I will start uploading pics for the glacier blog and doing my homework on it after work. Then (fingers crossed) be able to have it up and going next Sunday! But don't hold your breath to long, LOL!

Everyone have a great week, it is back to work tomorrow for me :(

The GFS says Miriam will affect us and the european model says Arizona will get it. I guess a 50/50 chance, if she is like Fabian, we will get nothing!

I made a scarflette for my aunt that has Alpaca in it and I didn't like it but now I'm thinking I just need a better quality yarn. The one I used was 70% acrylic so, yeah. Alpaca is supposed to be really warm. Next weekend is Alpaca farm open house weekend. I know - who knew?
I left a graphic at gg's that, when I saw it last night, sent me hunting for info on Mohair and Cashmere and Angora. Goats, of course. Mohair sounds good (even if Texas is the leading U.S. producer ;)). They all sound good, lol, and I need to knit more often so I can get to the next project! Sounds like the bug has bitten you, too ;)

Lucky Shadow getting a new bed :) I was looking at flooring the other day - the jigsaw puzzle rubber or foam thingies - and it seems some use that for older doggies. I was looking at it as a blocking board for knitting, natch.

Quoting WatchinTheSky:
And I thought just cats played with yarn, sp :)

LOL I've lived with a lot of cats since I began playing with yarn, myself. I could leave my work out and they wouldn't mess with it. The only trouble was when they wanted a lap that was already full of blanket! They'd make room, though. The last indoor cat did sometimes paw at piles of yarn but she seemed such a joyless little thing that I didn't begrudge her her bit of fun.
My dog, on the other hand, was a huge pest! Not only did she take up too much room for any work to get done (90-pound lapdog!) but she liked to nose around inside bags of yarn, pulling it out to get to the bottom and, of course, drooling all over everything. She also liked partially completed blankets - picking them up when I wasn't looking to drag them someplace for her to lay on, trailing yarn behind and around and under furniture ... crazy mutt. She was generally a very good house dog but, really, anything in a bag was unsafe around her.

Anyway, hope everyone's enjoying the Autumn tease. I'll try not to whine ... but I left the house at 7pm yesterday, as I sometimes do, and it was practically dark already! And I needed a blanket on the bed last night! And it's only 72 degrees here now!
Oops. That plan didn't last long ...

Hey Cal, just wanted to pop in and tell you that the Kenai is getting ready to flood near Cooper Landing. Boating is no longer allowed. What a scary situation for those folks. Now the road from Homer to Anchorage is in danger. Remember that low area around Kenai Lake. I guess it could all be under water soon. Knew you would be interested.

Hi, cal! It frosted here this morning, enough so I had to use a scraper on the windshield!

Think you'll get any residuals from Miriam?

Hi SP! Well the new yarn showed up and it is beautiful. I need to run into town to get the right needle size. I can hardly wait to get going on it. If the merino yarn i ordered doesn't match right I figured out that I can make a hat out of the original and I did order enough of the new yarn for a scarf. Matching cold weather outfit! I will have to check out that yarn you talked about.

Hi WTS! Aren't all these odd tropical clouds cool!!! Temps have lowered because of them, no rain though. Come on cool temps!!!! I am so done with summer!!!!

Hi Briar! I took all my garlic bulbs apart and put them all in paper bags. They are now in my kitchen. The softnecks which always hold up well are well, holding up well ( a whole lot of wells, lol) I did lose some of my hardnecks, but not to many.

I will be making those butternut latkes!! They sound great. I love butternut squash and acorn. Tonight we are BBQ a beer can chicken, then I will matchstick carrots and cut up red onions, butternut and red pepper and make oven cooked veggies. I put a little olive oil on them, bake them at 450 degrees for 30 min. then put them in a bowl and drizzle just a little honey. Yum!

Hi Prose! Beautiful morning glories, one of my favorite flowers! Thanks on the Brody compliment. He is one handsome kid!! He is visiting his other grandparents in Ohio right now, I bet he is having fun. I know the grandparents are for sure!!

Hi GG! I look for Orion every morning when I am out feeding the chickens. It has always been my favorite constellation!! It is nice to see in the morning.

We do get most of fall here. Though my Chinese Pistache doesn't always get to show those beautiful colors before then wind blows them away.

I think there will be a new blog on Tues. Probably be on Glaciers. After that the USCG Kodiak!

We ordered a new tempur-pedic bed for Shadow, as long as she is still going , we want to make her as comfortable as possible. She has two beds now but we think she would like a new one, LOL!

The Shady Lady tomatoes have decided to kick out a few more tomatoes before the end of the season. I have strange melons and squash growing in the main garden, probably from the compost.

Happiness is Shell oil not being able to drill this year!!!!!! Do not lower the bar, President Obama!!! Keep it high :)))))

Had to come by and see the puffins again. It really does feel like autumn. Orion is up in the morning sky.
The sun looks a bit diffrent. Won't be much leaf change here. They all just blow off bit by bit.
It's nice though.

How do I store garlic for a year? Just like onions, there are some varieties that keep well and some that don't. That said, if you have a variety that keeps 4-6 months, you can at double that storage time by breaking apart the bulbs. (I find that whole bulbs often will rot or mold from the center outwards.) I spread the individual, unpeeled cloves on trays and let them air dry outdoors in a shady place for 10-14 days. Bear in mind our temperature range at this time of year is usually 45F overnight and a high of 80F, so for you, I would not air dry them outside in the desert heat. When the cloves feel dry and solid when pinched gently between my fingers, I put 2-3 pounds of them in a brown paper bag in the cupboard over my stove. They get a little moisture from things cooking on the stove, but not a lot. By the end of the year, some of the cloves become shriveled and unusable, but 75% are still good enough for cooking.

Sounds like you've got a great crop of butternut squashes. Did you know they keep really great -- just sitting someplace dry and room temperature? I've still got one left over from last year's harvest. Here's one of my favorite ways to enjoy them:

Butternut Squash Latkes

3 cups butternut squash, shredded (a cheese grater works well)
1/2 cup onion, shredded
1 egg
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
olive oil for frying


Place shredded squash and onion on a layer of paper towels. Cover with another layer of paper towels, and press down firmly to remove all excess moisture. Repeat until squash and onion shreds are as dry as possible.

In a large mixing bowl, combine squash, onion, egg substitute, flour, and salt. Mix well. Add more flour, if needed, so that mixture holds together.

Preheat large skillet on medium heat with a light coating of olive oil. Place large spoonsful (1/3 to 1/2 cup) of squash mixture in skillet and flatten with a spatula to 1/2 inch thick. Gently turn over when golden brown and slightly crispy.

Serve like you would a potato pancake, with a dollop of sour cream or applesauce.

Re: knitting stuff ;)
Well, you did it again - sent me off to Ravelry looking at yarn! [note: this is not actually your fault, lol]
The LB Tweed looks better than I would have thought seeing it in the skein. Someone made a ten-stitch blanket out of it (one of my I'm-going-to-do-that projects) and it looks great.
Cascade yarns are very popular on Ravelry and I see them listed all the time. I haven't used any but I think you'll be happy - everyone else is!
My go-to brand for yarn right now is knitpicks because it is relatively inexpensive and very nice (that is, it's not so pricey that I worry about my skills not being worth it). I need to make a baby blanket soon and will use either their Swish (because I like it) or their new-ish acrylic (because the mom would prefer it - and I'm curious about it).
Your plan for pretend-DIL's Alpaca scarf sounds just right, and I hope you can get more of the nifty Merino for your own :)
Yarn is fun, isn't it?

So's weather when it's this nice! You're at a liveable temp right now and so am I :) They've got clouds in the forecast for Saturday but took the precip chances out. Good thing - I'm going to the big city and don't want rain on the freeway!

Um, writing too much so ... love the bear and kayak pic, garden plot is way smart, weed story is very funny (so is Ylee!), and hope your kitchen adventures went well :)

It worked SP! Thanks, to cute. I think if we had puppies in the cabin that is just what would happen.

Hi Karen! Thanks for the compliment on the pics. Everyone who loves the outdoors should go to Alaska! Since you two love to kayak, you could kayak in Prince William Sound and see the glaciers, or kayak around Kodiak and have whales around you or if you kayak on some lakes in the wildlife refuge you can have kodiak bears swimming with you, LOL!

Hi Ylee! It is amazing what you can do with a small garden that has really good soil. Right now the Butternut squash are trying to escape their confines and I have squash hanging from the sides of the garden.

I have to tell about my consulting job after work yesterday. Went to see an older gentleman who has quite a nice orchard. Next to one of his pecan trees was quite a healthy weed and when I looked at it, it really was weed!!! Marijuana! When I told him, I think he thought I was joking and just walked away from it. The seed must have blown in, LOL!

Another busy day ahead, got to freeze the peaches I picked last week, clean the cabin and do something with all the butternut squash. Plus make more room in the freezers for all this new stuff. No fun hiking today!

Oh those puffins are just too cute! They have such an unusual face! I love all your pictures from Alaska and I'm so envious of you.

Brody is ADORABLE!

It's too hot. Just plain too hot....although it did cool down today. It's been a really long week and the heat hasn't helped.

I think we're in for some cool down this week and I'm looking forward to it. Right now a marine layer is creeping in, but you won't hear me complaining about it!!

Happy Sunday to you, Ylee! No my son and his family are in Columbus, Ohio for his BIL's wedding. Do you see that nasty cloud that Katy had a VIP for?

Hi SP! Hey, if it is cool it is at Trader Joe's! Your link takes to a place that says access denied. (Top secret) :) If it can be fixed I would like to see it!

More knitting stuff, SP. The yarn I used for that scarf that I put the picture up was Lion Brand Tweed Stripes, color #206. It is a VERY soft yarn, and fun to work with. Also have you seen Cascade's yarn? I ordered their Pure baby Alpaca paint yarn. Not the chunky but the lighter yarn. The paints are hand dyed and look similar to Mountain Color yarn. I want to knit a light weight scarf for my older son's girlfriend (pretend DIL) and I thought Alpaca would be neat. Under $20.00 for I think 250 yds.. I started my merino scarf. What a fun yarn to knit, some of the yarn is super chunky and some is like light worsted! It is coming out really cool, a funky sorta cool. But I really like it. It better be a cold winter, or I had better find a cold place so I can wear it! I do love the feel of it.

Hi Briar! I will post a pic of it, without corn as Mr. Poppy pulled that up before I had a chance for a pic. Do you remember my garlic blog last year? That is the 10' by 10' garden. The caged garden is where my tomatoes and usually peppers are. This garden is raised but is open on the top. I did get some damage to a couple of squash and watermelon, oh and some cantalope. Not much though and all but one were still edible. It is hard as heck to get through the butternut skin!!! I have 12 butternuts sitting on my kitchen island and 6 more still maturing in the garden. The Acorn squash just didn't produce much, but what it did produce was great. You would think with 5 acres we would have this amazing garden but with our critters and water situation my 10' by 10' is great! And my other garden is 8' by 12' so between the 2 and my greenhouse I have enough to eat fresh, freeze and give to a neighbor.

For the winter garden I am planting Kilarney Red garlic and I think the other half I will plant in carrots. I juice a lot so carrots would be perfect! I have bird netting I can put over the top so birds don't peck the new garlic coming up or the carrots.

I found a pic from last year's 10'x 10' garden, here it is:

Just use your imagination and put corn amongst everything, LOL!

Briar, you said you can store garlic for a year, HOW? And what kind are you storing. We are seriously thinking of digging a root cellar of sorts, just for the garlic. I am so tired of losing my hardnecks at this time of year. They are my seed garlic and I wanted to plant them, but now I had to order some. My softnecks are fine, they are supposed to store better.

I had better get busy, I have been running around all afternoon in the big city. Now time to get stuff done around here.

I'm so glad you visited the Alaska Sea Life Center. And I'm even happier that you took pictures to share with us. It looks like just the sort of place I would love to spend time at.

And I'll look forward to seeing your 10' x 10' garden whenever you get around to it. Do I recall a maximum security cage that you shared with us a year or two ago? Is that where you have your garden?

I saw Puffins cereal at Trader Joe's! Who knew?
Thanks for the info on what they eat - they look like they could crack open a crab shell with those beaks so I'm surprised they need them for little fishes. No accounting for taste, though ;)

I thought I was seeing all the pics and no red x's ... but didn't see the adorable baby walrus or whale or the building, initially.

It does feel like Fall. I think it's the change in the light. Went to Ventura yesterday to escape the heat and it was pretty darned hot by the water, too. Nice, actually, since it's usually cold!

A cautionary tale for you :)

Ogal and Miss Nadia thanks for coming back to let me know it worked!!!!

Hi Rob! I think your blog is hysterical! You guys have to much fun Thanks for the complement on the pics, I really appreciate it!!

Hi Ylee! I guess sooner or later hurricanes and Tropical storms will bring up old girlfriends, boyfriends or old husbands and wives for the good or the bad :))) I haven't seen a hurricane yet that had a name I could relate to, but I am sure my time is coming!

I see Kristy is spinning off of Baja; forecast says it's not going to do much. I once had a girlfriend by that name, too, and she wasn't very dependable, either! :)

Hope you have a good weekend!

I think I fixed it! At least on my phone and my laptop it is working. Had to change out some pictures, so for those of you who were able to see it to begin with there will be a few different ones.

For those of you who couldn't see, please tell me if they are visible now.

Thanks so much :)))))

GG! That commercial is so cute, who would have thunk that a Puffin would have a Scottish accent! Sounds a bit like Montgomery Scott, I think :)

I know if I lived in Seward I would be volunteering at this place! It is not very big, but I just really like what they do and how they go about it.

I have firefox on my mac lap top and I can see then there. Maybe I will try safari and put then in with that. Looks like only firefox users can see them.

Thank you all for answering!!! I hope to get it fixed when I get home this evening!

The pictures at the top of your blog except for the Sealife logo are all red x's here. The puffins and Brody show up fine.

A quick question, does everyone see the pictures in the beginning of the blog?

I see them on my computer but not on my phone, strange!

Hi, wow Cody is getting so big! He really does look like an adorable bear cub.

The puffins are great. Just spent the last hour looking at you-tube videos on puffins. There are some very good ones. Of course with that in mind, I'm going to post the funny one.
