C-130

It was another cool, windy week.  At least the albatross chicks aren't getting overheated yet.  A Coast Guard C-130 came in for a day this week.  They had a search operation in the area.  Landings were more common when we were able to do more medical evacuations from passing ships.  Other than that, it was a usual week with the Laysan duck botulism checks, albatross plot monitoring, invasive plant removal, and of course, trying to get all my affairs in order to move out 2 weeks from Tuesday.  Thanks for the nice comments this past week!

 The C-130 crew spent the day here since they have to land and take off at night, and the pilots need their rest.
 Volunteer Hope is painting some of the Short-tailed albatross decoys in the garage.

This is Frigate Point.  This area is closed, so we don't go there much, but I was giving Bret the island tour.

There are even fewer albatrosses in this photo of the parade field than when I showed the same area 2 weeks ago.

Pete,
I lived on Midway in 1958. Reading your blog and seeing your photos has brought me back to that very happy time in my life. Living on Midway was a gift. Thanks for bringing back the memories. I'll miss you and wish you as much happiness as you have brought me. Good Luck in your future work.

Thanks for all the posts. I lived there as a kid when my dad was in the Seabees. He ran the power plant. I visited in 2001 and loved it. It is nice to see the pictures and keep up with what's going on at the island. Please try and talk the new manager into continuing a blog.
Good luck with your new post.
Clayton

I am writing this Testimony because am really grateful for what MARTINEZ LEXIE did for me and my family when I thought there was no hope he came and make my family feel alive again by lending us loan at a very low interest rate of 2%, well I have been searching for a loan to settle my debts and bills for the past months all I met scammed and took my money total 6,500usd until I finally met a God sent Lender. I never thought that there are still genuine lenders on the internet but to my greatest surprise i got my loan form this great company without wasting much time so if you are out there looking for a loan of any kind for business or other purposes i would advise you to email Mr MARTINEZ LEXIE via: ( Lexieloancompany@yahoo.com ) or through the Company website: http://lexieloans.bravesites.com OR text: +18168926958 and be free of internet scams. thanks… Jenny Hills Resident: Los Angeles CA, United State

HOW I WAS RESCUED BY A GOD FEARING LENDER {jonesloaninvestment@hotmail.com}

Hello everyone, I am Oliver Johnson Moore from Zurich Switzerland and want to use this medium to express gratitude to EDWARD JONES for fulfilling his promise by granting me a loan, i was stuck in a financial situation and needed to refinance and pay my bills as well as start up a Business. I tried seeking for loans from various loan firms both private and corporate organisations but never succeeded and most banks declined my credit request. But as God would have it, i was introduced by a friend named Lisa Rice to EDWARD JONES LOAN COMPANY and undergone the due process of obtaining a loan from the company, to my greatest surprise within 28hrs just like my friend Lisa, i was also granted a loan of $387,000.00; So my advise to everyone who desires a loan, "if you must contact any firm with reference to securing a loan online with low interest rate of 2% and better repayment plans/schedule, please contact EDWARD JONES LOAN COMPANY. Besides, he doesn't know that am doing this but due to the joy in me, i'm so happy and wish to let people know more about this great company whom truly give out loans, it is my prayer that GOD should bless them more as they put smiles on peoples faces.
