Still need to pack so this will be relatively brief . . .
LEAVING FOR YAP IN THE MORNING - It's one of my favorite places to go for a number of reasons (including the wonderful Ramen Bowl I have for lunch most days at Ganir) but the best of all is not only the diving but the people who comprise the staff at Manta Ray Bay. They take fabulously wonderful care of us and it seems like the word "No" simply isn't in their vocabulary. It's a compact group of divers this time but that just gives us a little more flexibility as to where we can go. MRB has a pretty good Wi-Fi signal so my hope is that I'll be able to post the "Daily Top 10 Pix" each day that we're there. First dive day (but only a single dive) is Wednesday. Follow us on either the Ken Kurtis or Reef Seekers Facebook pages or directly on SmugMug: YAP TOP 10 PIX (CHOOSE A DAY)
MARINE MAMMAL STRANDINGS - Sad but thorough story in Saturday's L.A. Timesabout an uptick in the stranding of marine mammals, especially in Orange County, and especially with young sea lions. They're not sure of the causes but it could be El Nino-related. You can read about it here: Sickly Sea Mammals
DIVERS DAY WAS FUN - Nice to see many of you at the annual Divers Day at the Aquarium of the Pacific on Saturday. (Tell a diver something's free and he/she will be there.) Also had a good time showing a number of you our juvy (just over 2 years old) Giant Black Sea Bass in the Amber Forest exhibit. He's definitely getting bigger and now really looks like a miniature GSB. And it was certainly good talking to many of you about Chamber Day 2019. Speaking of which . . .
WE'RE OPEN FOR BUSINESS - Reef Seekers is a co-sponsor of the Cee Ray and we've got our own table at Chamber Eve. Both are starting to fill. Plus you can make a donation to the Chamber Challenge &/or sign up for the Flying Dutchman. Remember that around 50% of the Chamber's annual operating budget has to come from fund-raising and this event fills a large part of that need. Here's the link: CHAMBER DAY & EVE 2019
And that'll do it for now. I don't know why I hate to pack, but I seem to be very good at putting it off until the last minute, which would be now. Have a great week and hope you can join us vicariously in Yap!!!
