Memorial Day Photos

We had a nice Memorial Day Ceremony with most of the island population.  We'll have another ceremony for the Battle of Midway on June 4th.  There are no visitors coming out this year, so we'll just have island people again.  I know that the Navy is going to be having a commemoration at the Navy Memorial in Washington D.C. this week. 
Believe it or not, this is most of the island population right now.

One of the Thai employees, Sam, made this flower display and lei. 

These are 5 inch guns that are at the memorial.

I gave kayak training to a few people who haven't had it yet.  Penny, Liz, and Darren are flipping the kayaks to make sure they can get back in before they go out on their own.

The albatross chicks like the new air conditioning units at my house.

This White tern found an interesting spot for an egg.  Ric and Tim won't be able to use their hose for a couple of months.
