  • After a long day of watching Nest #53 for more early risers, 81 hatchlings boiled out of the nest at about 8:00pm with a large crowd happy to see them in the waning daylight!  Team 2 thanks all those who came to help take shifts and to Amy, Marianne and a Villas couple who set up the Shibumi Cave!  It was COOL!
  • Nest #65 also boiled last night (way past Gary’s bedtime) with 50 hatchlings going straight to the water.  We believe the ship’s light out on the horizon was their beacon!


  • Nest #53 had some crab activity
  • Nest #65 had one more set of hatchling tracks down the runway.
