On a routine pan at 0848 I happened to spy a Glass Ball floating a couple of hundred feet off shore of RI. Many years of familiarity with the currents told me that there was a good chance it was headed my way so I kept an eye on it. 3 hrs & 5 mins later it made it to just off shore just west of Makai Pier. I gottum’ Yahoo !!!

A Tammy T., text advised that she and hubby Dave were back from vacation (welcome home) and trekking to the End of the World. At 1020 they reported Luana (RN58) at 10 Min Beach, and at Ka’ena Point, Ka’ena (RO40).

I was happily surprised when ValMail arrived this afternoon, as always, but the shot just made my day. Diane Pike & Val Bloy are two of my favorite people on the planet. They began as a Molokai duo, opening the eyes of everyone to the Molokai Monk Seal cast, but Val & hubby Ron relocated to Kauai. The world is a better place when these two are together!!
