When I got to Spitting Cave at 0757 I found Buster and Kolohe together, doing 7 minute dives. I'd last seen Buster at Rabbit Island on 11-25-10 . Since he should be molting any second now, I was beginning to think he was rotting somewhere else, so I was happy to see my #3 son. Hopefully, he'll be back home at Rabbit Island tomorrow.
My first look at Rabbit Island had been a bust, however when I got back to Makai Pier at 0900 I found Duke and Sam together at the left end, and Sadie by herself up in the grass at the right end. All would remain the rest of the day.
Team Billand's first call came at 0842 with the report of Benny fronting #1707 at White Plains.
Next came a report of RO28 at Guard Rail Beach, Maili Pt, at 1026. Dera got a DOCARE call in the afternoon, reporting that kids were throwing rocks at RO28. An officer was on the scene. Dana checked in at 1700 to advise that all was quiet, and the officer was still around.
At 1119 they found Kermit at Tracks. This was the first sighting at this location.
Rocky was next, hauling out to Kermit's Reef on the west side of the Nimitz jetty at 1356.
Lastly, at 1437 they found Ewa Girl at Palm Grove, Campbell Industrial Park at 1437. She had last been seen, by the Billands of course, at Wind Sock , on 10-22-10. Where in the archipelago that girl has been, only Ewa Girl knows !
