Last night at the Old Powerhouse Restaurant we had a table by the window and suddenly Nora and Stuey exclaimed 'walrus'. 'No', we explained, 'those are sea lions, or winaq (singular) in Alutiiq'. Later another one went by and I said, 'Stuey, look another sea lion', and he replied, 'No daddy, Winaq'. It's actually a little ironic that he picked up on that Alutiiq word because back when he was a VERY large baby I used to call him winaq as sort of a joke. Now only if the Killer whales had also swum past while we ate our dinner.. .... . Patrick
