Last weekend we had two of our four kids visiting, so on Sunday we took them down to Seward to the Alaska Sealife Center. If you’re ever in the Great Land, I recommend a visit. The Center has some neat actual animals in residence, including sea lions, harbor seals, and a big variety of sea birds, fish and other marine animals. There’s a touch display that the little kids really enjoy, and plenty of info on the sea life native to the Gulf of Alaska and other Alaska waters.
Also, the town of Seward itself is interesting. It’s got a kind of touristy little main drag, with lots of souvenir shops and a few really good restaurants. If you want to look around for some kitschy little Alaska doodads or some t-shirts, and then maybe have some fresh halibut and chips for lunch, Seward is a decent place to do that.

This Week’s Cultural Edification:
Once in a while I go on a nostalgia kick, music-wise, and one of my go-tos for those times is Glen Campbell. In 1977, he released what I’ve always considered one of his better tunes. Hearing it always takes me back to the summer I was sixteen, and careering around northeast Iowa in a pickup truck, stirring up lots of dust from those gravel roads.
The song in question tells a tale of Campbell’s own youth in rural Louisiana. Here, then, is that song, from the album of the same name: Southern Nights. Enjoy.
