Today's dailies are brought to you by Team Billand, Team T&D, and posse pal diver Paul H.
Paul once again was going for a dive on the east side and found the lovely Kawena RH36. He was able to get a positive ID by her H37 tag.
Team T&D hiked out to the point and met up with Lesley. The waves were huge washing over most of the point. They came across five seals. RL98 Lina on her favorite beach. She was high up almost in the naupaka. Next was RK40 Napua, who was also high up on shore. At the point was R330 Squinty by himself. He got washed over several times but he stayed. Then there was RN58 Luana and RW02 PvKauai.
Team Billand started their day at the outfall. At 7:30 they saw a seal foraging but it left before theycould get an ID. It was reported as a U/U.
On their next stop they got lucky and found five critters. First there was RH76 Kala with R3CX Nalu sleeping next to each other. Lei Ola RH48 was also on the rocks resting. They spotted RL20 Kalua swimming to the rocks, clinging on. His snout is even greener than before, his tags were visible and looks like the fishing line is gone. If that wasn't enough they see another seal haul up on lower rocks. It was Kekoa RK72.
Team Billand headed over to the bay and it was empty, no seals, no fish schools, no fishermen. They waited a bit and and sure enough RN44. They were thrilled to see him the last of the crew. A couple of tourists came and went up to take their selfies. The couple walked around and went back to RN44, but this time Team Billand stopped them and explained it was best to let the seal rest and gave them a lesson in monk seal 101.
After leaving the bay they returned to check on the group of five. They found R3CU up on high mid rocks. He tried to come down but it was a too high so he turned and stayed facing the ocean. Kala, Kekoa and Nalu were together on lower rocks. RL20 Kalua was alone to the right on a small patch of sand.
Last but not least they found RL12 Aukai and RN14 Kalani together on shore. A little while later they RH32 Ka'ale joined the two of them and of course there was trouble. A fight broke out, and then all three left.
Lefty RG28 was on his own at tracks today.
