|An Otter On Ice In The Gulf Of Alaska|
In a blogging inexplicably titled Tails, Fins and Eyes you take a boat ride out into the Gulf of Alaska where you'll see giant glaciers, humpback whales, sea lions, orcas and otters, among other things.
The nicknames of the humans who Rosie the Rat Dog looks after are Otter and Penguin, hence the Internet handle of otterpengu.
I've never had explained to me the reason for the Otter/Penguin nicknames, but I can guess that it might have something to do with a resemblance to those cute critters.
I am enjoying the written commentary on the Alaska! Blog. It is written in a very purple prose style, like what a pioneer woman might write whilst crossing America on the Oregon Trail back in the 1860s.
I particularly enjoy the imaginative spelling and new word inventions. I think my favorite new word may be "fastination."
I am not certain, but I think "fastination" means being fascinated by scenery one sees when traveling at a high rate of speed. I may be wrong about this.
