Tonight we are supposed to have another medevac flight. Another Japanese fisherman needs help. The Coast Guard will fly their C-130 out to pick him up. That will probably be about 1 a.m. and I have to help out on the boat when we go out of the atoll to pick him up, so I'll be tired tomorrow. I'll try to get a little sleep on the plane to Hawaii. We'll probably get to Honolulu around 3 a.m.
Since my girlfriend (Dasha) is coming to meet me in Hawaii for a week, we decided that that's as good a place as any to get married. So we'll do that on the beach on Wed. We will visit the families for Christmas and that will be enough of a reception I think.
Anyway, I might not have time to post anything tomorrow before I leave so if not, check back in early Jan. when I get back to Midway.
This white-fronted goose lives over on Eastern Island. It's trying to get fat enough to make it back to wherever it belongs. The ducks don't seem to mind it too much.
These ruddy turnstones are sitting on one of the fuel pipes that runs out on the fuel pier.
