Happy Camper for March 2, 2015

Mary Zakula said counting marine life is a lot better than shoveling snow. She was one of more than a hundred volunteers who took part in the second Sanctuary Ocean Count on Saturday.

Mike Kano, the site leader at the Ninini Point station, said there were a bunch of spinner dolphins, but whales were not that plentiful.

Laurie Ho said Carolyn Lum was supposed to be part of the February count, but Carolyn was busy with the tennis clinic taking place at the Kauai Community College courts (Ernie Blachowiak had his full-on University of Hawaii gear on).

Lani Tamanaha Broadbent continued her work as site leader at the Ahukini site and got her friend Bev Broughton of Vancouver, British Columbia, to join the group. Bev was with her friend Tess Longlade of Ontario who is in her second year counting after being trained last year.

James Yamamoto was busy trying to juggle the Ocean Count and still make it to the Boys & Girls Club breakfast.

The traditional Japanese Girls Day observance is Tuesday, the third day of the third month. Happy Girls Day, Kauai!
