It began with a call to a nearby cove where I would find RV18 snoozing in the rocks. After taking a number of photos I discovered he had what appeared to be a 'hook" on his back. Photos were taken and submitted to the science folks and they determined it wasn't a hook, but some marine debris that was just "stuck" on his back. Phew...what a relief. He later moved to the outer rocks where he snoozed the rest of the day.
Below was the area of concern...do you see the "C" looking object??
The stuff at the top of the back is the remnants of a cell phone tag. No need to worry it's just the glue pad used to hold the tag in place. He will lose it over time. I was concerned about the "C"
Later, I decided to take a nice hike up the coconut coast in search of monk seal K13. She's our pregnant girl and has been off the radar for a few days. Unfortunately no seals, but there were turtles and whales splashing in the water while tourists zoomed by me and them on their bikes. As I hiked along I thought to myself; I know they're on vacation, but they really should stop and smell the roses!! They were missing the true beauty of this island, all because they were going too fast.

As I was headed back to my car I was pleased to see one of those zooming
tourists take a break and soak up the beauty.
come back tomorrow when I tell you the rest of the story!!
