Sea Life Road Trip & The King

Never have taken this little car out of town, until yesterday. The plan was to go to Seward for lunch and a tour of the Sea Life Center.  The day was cold and snowy, so the roads might be slick, but my produce man who drove in from Girdwood assured me the highway was fine.

And fine it was, the Cooper gripped the road, and passed two massive trucks. And a few other vehicles that needed passing, with petrol sipping ease.

The Sea Life Center sits between Resurrection Bay and the town of Seward, perhaps on the very spot where in the 1700 Russian fur traders built a three masted sailing vessel named Phoenix.

Sea Life Center takes care of injured, orphaned or animals that were born in captivity and could not survive in the wild. All residents are indigenous to Resurrection Bay or Alaska.

The center was quiet on a winter afternoon, and afforded us clear shots at all the fish in the barrel’s, but the real work of the Sea Life Center is getting science & reason on the fishing boats that harvest the oceans bounty.

Ice Gal goes on the road Sunday to learn the lower end of the Celsius scale. Traveling the Alcan highway in the winter to Spokane Washington by car, in search of my ice free motorcycle.
