Another Busy Day

The Walnut came today and took most of our nets. They couldn't quite fit them all in the shipping container, so we've got a little pile left. They'll pick them up some other time I guess. This afternoon we did some more chainsawing and then had a BBQ at the Walnut. The island residents and even some of the visitors came out to have some food and drinks and meet the crew. It was a good time and we also got a tour. The plane came in tonight and 3 new volunteers came in for the summer, a few other people came in too so I'll meet them over the next few days.
Here's the Walnut. All of the Coast Guard buoy tenders are named after trees.

This was the scene at the BBQ.

Greg and I found this albatross about to drown in the harbor so we pulled it out. It probably won't make it, but at least it has a chance.
