5-22-2013 DB Dailies: Kainoa,Duke&M38@RI, Kaiwi@SC, Rocky@MI, R5AY@Kaaawa, Buster@KCG, Benny@WP, Right Spot, Ua Malie&Kaikaina@TB
On my 2nd look at Rabbit Island, at 0920 I found Duke (RA12) at Seal Rock Inlet. He would later relocated to the left end rock flats on Rabbit Island, where he remained the rest of the day.
On a pan at 1002 I found Kainoa (RN04) newly arrived at the far left end of the beach on RI. He too would remain at that location all day.
At 1105 RM38 would haul out to the left end of the beach, first checking in with Kainoa and then moving to Duke. There was never any interaction. M38 was in full "cruiser male mode", spending the day cruising RI , end to end. The haul outs to Duke & Kainoa when happen two more times, with no interaction. Each time he would return to the water after a couple of minutes, only to do it all over again later on.
At 1108 Gayle called with the report of Kaiwi (RK96) doing 6 minute dives at Spitting Cave.
At 0723 Dera called with the report of an animal along the roadside in Kaaawa. Photo recieved would confirm the R5AY ID. She would be gone at 0930.
At 0752 the Billands checked in , following Buster (RV08) , in cruiser male mode, traveling from Kalaeloa CG to Hau Bush (Ewa Beach), on his Irma Quest. They lost him at Hau Bush, but find him again for a moment at Wind Sock, before he continued on his adventure.
At 1032 the Billands reported Benny (RE74) newly arrived fronting Tower #1 , White Plains. They would later advise that he had relocated to #1707, WP.
On their 1355 recheck, Benny was gone, but in his place was RP (RR70) at #1707. RIP would depart at 1738.
Posse member Christian called at 1059 with the report of "N11" , Rocky (RH58) just hauling out to the beach at Magic Island. He and a lifeguard would cordon her off. Dana advised at 1443 that Stephen had responded. Rocky departed at 1536.
At 1407 Lesley called with the report of Right Spot (R016) at Turtle Bay.
At 1445 she checked in again with the report of Ua Malie (RT10) at her birth beach, and "Little Sister", Kaikaina (RL54) at Elbow Beach. (Thank you....you know who you are)
Last but not least, Happy Birthday Mojo. My #2 turns 9 today.
Thank you to my good pal Karen Harris, for her airborne shot showing the scenic view of my Makai Pier perch and Rabbit Island and cast.
R5AY @ Kaaawa..... awww she's looking terrific
great shot to give everyone some perspective how far away DB is from Rabbit island.... so the fact he can ID an animal is amazing and that we get to see photos.... priceless!
