The Kahana came back this week. This time they are also making stops at Tern, Laysan, and Kure to switch out crews. We've still got the Kure crew here helping us out so we've been able to plant a lot more bunchgrass than usual. We've got another good visitor group here this week, and the weather is finally getting less windy. They'll finally be able to hold their cameras steady for pictures.
We also got out snorkeling this week for the first time in a long time. It was great, as always. I didn't take a lot of pictures this week, on land at least, so I've got mostly underwater ones this time.
The Kahana brought more food supplies and fuel. They'll be going up to Kure Atoll in a couple of days before they head back to Honolulu via Laysan Island and Tern Island.
This is a belted wrasse and a saddle wrasse.
The shortnosed wrasses are colorful little fish.
