Gonna Need A Bigger Boat

So a fellow named Michael Duffy went to sleep Saturday night in his 41-foot sloop Elixir docked at the San Diego Yacht Club. Around 2:30 Sunday morning, someone- or something- woke him up. He rolled back over, went back to sleep.

Then he woke up again at 6am.

Hey there, little buddy.


“Saw this in my local paper, only in SoCal!” -A.J.

UPDATE: In Other Blorp News, this fellow found his very own surfboard. He’s keeping it.

Got Fish?

[Oh, Rachel! You DO! Mind if I just, ooomph, er, OOOMPH! Get up here and…ahhh. Whew, I could stand to lose a few. OK. All set. Fork it over.]

Wanna Help These Guys? Of Course You Do.

unnamed (3)THIS JUST IN from Cuteporter KB: “There’s currently a Sea Lion pup crisis along California shores – so many of them are starving and in need of help. California Wildlife Center in Malibu is one of the facilities rescuing the Bebehs and caring for them until they’re healthy enough to return to the ocean.

Right now CWC’s Marine Mammal Rescue Team gets about 50 rescue calls every day! This weekend they’re doing an urgent fundraising drive to build a Sea Lion pup fund to help the wee McBlubbersons. Here’s the donation link. Every penny helps!”

PS: “Why is this little girl’s head purple? The babies are all marked to help caregivers keep track of rescue location, weight, feeding, medicine and progress.”

Hund + Sjøløve = Sant (Dog + Sea Lion = True)

Border Collie Vilde meets Sea Lion Amy in Bergen, Norway. The original story is here, and this is a bit of translation c/o Google Chrome:

“The dog has a very strong herding instinct,” says Frits Martem, dog owner and zookeeper at the Bergen Aquarium. “It’s much interesting to study for the dogs. We have seen both crocodiles, seals and penguins, says the owner. But when they approach the pool where the sea lions live, it starts to tingle extra amount of dog body.”

“Sea lions Amy is a little over two years old and is considered young. She is very playful and active. I think this is a meeting between two excited animals with much profit,” says aquarium director Kees Ekeli jokingly.


“Interspecies fun from the lovely city of Bergen. :) Kind regards, Reidun, devoted fan.” Sendt fra min iPhone.

Meanwhile, Lurking Off The CA Coast…

“I was out at Moss Landing near Monterey, California this weekend and snapped this! The first thing that came to my mind were the lyrics, ‘I always feel like somebody’s watching me!’ Hope you like it!” -Cuteporter Tammy L., on the scene.

Orkin’ In The Galapagos (Updated!)

Cue Kathleen C.: “Near the end of our Galapagos Islands trip, we went to a beach where legend has it, a giant colony of Blorp Pillows resides. We added some artistry to the scene & built a big old sand sculpture. Wouldn’t you know it, a sea lion comes floppin’ over and decides to have a nap. On our sculpture.

“Here is the colony. We R not kidding. All the way up and down the beach, the Blorp Pillows were “just lion around.” Our ears were ringing with Ork, Ork, Ork, but it was so worth it.”

“The main port was awash with sea lions. This one was stealing freshly-caught fish right off the market counter with a “Humph” on its face.”

“These two pups were rolling all up and down the beach, playing with each other. We saw plenty of wildlife but the sea lions were the best.”
