Looking for PIP...

Off I go...
Tide was very low this morning.
It's been over 2 months since I've been out to the albatross chick site,
so today was a field trip to check up on them. 
When I arrived at the chick site,  I found this mound of fluff

right in the middle of an open area with absolutely no protection

All of a sudden a head popped up!!

It was Pip, covered in his soft downy coat.
 He waits patiently for his parents to return with his next protein enriched meal.
It was good to see him, just a couple more months and he'll be soaring the blue skies. 

I also spent some time picking up some marine debris and tiny shells.

I found this bottle treasure.
 It was a lovely day.
God is Good!!

 Mahalo for your encouraging words on last Saturday. 
God always knows the timing of our needs.

Earth Day 2016

My friend Ellen and I enjoyed exploring Moloa`a  Bay Ranch Costal Trail and tried our best to get to Kaakaanui Cove. A lovely day watching turtles and seabirds under Kauai's beautiful blue sky--
Earth Day at it's best!!
Moloa`a  Beach is also know as the location where they filmed the pilot for Gilligan's Island.
"Now this is a tale of our castaways"

sign says it all...

Here we go...

Ellen blazing the trail.

a look at Kaakaaui  Cove--so close yet so far...Cove is just around the corner,
lots of boulder hopping and a very steep descent from this cliff.

Ellen using the designated owner erected this fence,
 preventing us from easy access to Kaakaanui Cove.

this is what happens to barbed wire in salty air conditions
Can't really see them, but there were about a dozen green sea
turtles in the water doing whatever sea turtles do!!

On the way home I stopped at this "Tiny Home Bakery" just two blocks from
 the beach for some yummy bread to go with tonight's lasagna.
