Walrus Joy!

Walrus

Constance is happy to see the walrus boys are back!

Walrus Live Chat

She convinced some of her sisters to watch the live chat with the Alaska Fish and Game Department folks that spend the summer on the island counting walruses…

.

.

Loafing

They learned a lot…like the fact that these are only male walruses; what happens if a tusk breaks off; where the female walruses spend the summers; and what the foxes do on the island…

Old friends

…but for some reason Constance is still the only die-hard Hitty fan of walrus-watching in this household.

  1. Oh Boy…now I won’t rest until I find out all of the answers to these questions. I still smile when I think about the twins in their walrus sleeping bags.

    • The twins adore their walrus beach blanket/sleeping bags…they are snuggled in them right this minute, sleeping off another adventure in the cupboard! They think walruses have a good life, at least in the summer!

  2. quite obviously it must be an acquired taste. Constance is a HItty of discernment and far reaching curiosity. very scholarly. The Country Hittys are quite impressed with her. and yes I too recall the block twins pretending to be walrus babies in their sleeping bags.

    • You are right about it being an acquired taste. Constance enjoys looking at what the weather is like in Alaska, and learning about sea-ice and walrus tusks…a little escape from the Hitty Cupboard routine.
