5-25-2013 DB's Dailies: Kainoa,Kaiwi,Duke&M38@RI, RL42&Ka'ena@KP, Right Spot@3Tables, Buster@DH, KC@Kualoa BP, Benny@SB
On my 2nd look at Rabbit Island, at 0846, I found Duke (RA12), 60 ft out on the left end rock flats. He would remain there all day.
Also at 0846 I found Kainoa (RN04), 80 ft right of 3BS, on RI. He too would remain all day.
At 0946 M38 , in cruiser male mode, hauled out to investigate Duke on the flats, and after two minutes, reentered the water to move down to the right end to do the same thing with Kainoa. The boy was on patrol all day.
At 1025 I found Kaiwi (RK96) on the water front rocks of Right Middle Cliff. She would remain all day.
Marilyn & Lesley did the Ka'ena Point trek today, going in from the Waianae side. 1/3rd of the way in the found RL42. She was still there when they came out.
At the point they found only Ka'ena (RO40), near Ka'ena's Pool. He spent most the the day doing his best hippo imitation .
Posse member Christian called at 1305 with the report of "N21", Buster (RV08) near the Beach Rd end of Diamond Head. A person on the scene said he'd called 3 hrs ago but nobody ever came. Christian got the signs from the showers .
Colleen called at 1530 to advise that she'd gotten a call about an animal just hauling out to the showers. It would prove to be Buster relocating due to the rising tide.
Dana had called at 1403 with the report of a Kualoa animal. Diane Gabriel responded and confirmed "N14", KC (RK28) at Kualoa Beach Park.
Lifeguard posse member Billy called at 1622 reporting an animal just hauling out to the east end of Sandy Beach. When we arrived at 1630 we found Benny (1630), surrounded by his adoring hordes. We managed get him some room , and cordoned him off. I picked up the rope at 1930. Benny remains.
Team Billand had a rare sealess day, however they were still out there as usual. Yesterday they found a large cargo net at Campbell Industrial Park. Today they returned and with the help of visitor snorkelers, Jason & Sarah, they managed to get the thing outta' the water. Ya' Done Good!!!
