Twas the day before Thanksgiving and guess what??
I didn't have to wear any of those hats, but...
Schatzie and I were subjected to baths, pedicures and an ear cleaning. Mom said something about us smelling like dogs. Hello Mom, we are dogs!!
Once we were finished getting all pretty mom put us out on the lanai to warm up and then she left us.
Yes, left us!!
She went exploring. She'd gotten a message about helping to get some derelict fishing nets off the beach, so off she went. She does that stuff so our marine mammal friends don't
get entangled in the nets.
after the net cleanup she went to the Northeast shore of our island.
If you look really close at the above photo (just above the center of the photo)
you might be able to see the
Kilauea Light House.
Here you see Gary, another monk seal volunteer mom caught up with, he's checking out RN44.
Can you find the seal??
How about this...hey mom, zoom in so they can see it
a beautiful arch
Mom found this Hono, (that means turtle). Isn't she a beauty!!
Gary says she usually hauls out with her bo, but not today :(
Here's K.C. or as the scientist call her RK28
just enjoying a snooze on the beach.
Mom also saw a couple whales ( she didn't get any photos) they were a bit too far out to get good shots so she just used her binoculars and watched the show.
According to her, they saw a number of pectoral slaps and 6 breaches. These were the first whales mom has observed this season.
t'was the day before Thanksgiving...
Mom saw 3 seals, 1 turtle, her first whales of the season and we got baths!!
Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!!
Gracie and family
