Midway Weather

Wastin away again in Midway

Now that the hammock is up and running, I'm trying to spend time under the pier as much as possible.  It is a delightful section of the island to get away from the noise of the generators and listen to the hiss of breaking surf on the beach.

Yesterday I woke up from a nap to find this napping endangered Hawaiian Monk Seal a few feet away.  Honestly it was his chainsaw like snoring that woke me from my slumber.  In keeping with the refuge requirements to maintain a reasonable distance from them, I had to get up and leave.

Then a dozen yards down the beach I found this sea turtle lounging in the shallows just a few feet from shore.  He poked his head out of the water for a minute to check me out, then went back to floating in the undulating waves.

Seems like a pretty nice way to have spent the afternoon in retrospect.
