Hospital Point

This weekend we had a negative tide and decided to walk around Hospital Point. We had fun finding baby Octo's in the tide pools and urchin shells. At one point we had to split up the group. Families with little kids turned around but the Fly's, Edwin and us decided to go all the way around. At one point you can no longer walk on the small reef flat below the cliff line. Thus you must jump in and swim to the next area. The waves weren't too bad so we all bailed into the ocean. Unfortunately, Edwin didn't feel to comfortable in the small swells. After a little drama getting him back up on the ledge we continued the walk. Sho and I snorkeled for a while. I had our waterlogged gear bag as well as Edwin's backpack. All that drag made it a chore to keep up with Shoshanna. Anyway, once up on the reef flat again Dixie found a black nudibranch. We had already see him but while we watch him crawl away we saw the small bubble shell below. Not quite a nudibranch but a close relative. We've been wanting to find one and now we have it. July 4 was fun, but I didn't find anything too explosive in the stores :-( There are a few bonus Yap pictures, Enjoy!!

My Pinapple is getting big, but the sprout on top is even bigger.

Leaving Ulithi all flowered up.

Great pictures - your pineapple is really "growing Up". We'll have to come over when you pick it - yummmm!
The Hospital Point sounds fun - maybe a bit scary! Always enjoy keeping up with you and your many adventures!

Might have been a little more exciting for you if you had been enjoying the washing machine. Hee hee. Nice pic of the bubble shell.
