Nest 2 Update

Nothing too eventful on our walk today, however we noticed a large crab hole in the center of our recently almost-inventoried nest, nest number 2.

 There was also clear washover where the tide had swept debris to the front of the cage and filled up our  chamber, along with a pungent odor in the air.

We also noticed two crab holes on Nest 6 close to the post. One can never be too sure of the intentions of crabs, but it may indicate activity.

Thanks to Dave and Valerie for shuttling us out in the back of their pickup truck--it's always a fun ride and a gorgeous view. :)
