7-4-2013 DB's Dailies!!! BIG NEWS!Kainoa@RI, Kolohe@SC, Irma&Pup@AD's, Buster&Weaner@RR, Benny&Pohaku@PC
At 0649 Kimo called with the report of what would prove to be Kolohe (RW22) at Spitting Cave, doing 13 to 23 min. dives.
On my 2nd look at Rabbit Island at 0900 I found Kainoa (RN04) fronting Right Middle Cliff.
A call from Tatiana at 0922 put the day on a whole ‘nother level. She had gotten a call reporting a Mom & Pup at AD’s at 0922. When I arrived at 0936 I found Thomas Engles & wife, along with Irma & Pup, 300 yds east of the AD’s wall. This is basically the same location as her 2011 birth. I got up a temporary cordoned and alerted the troops. Tatiana & Cianna arrive with the cavalry at 1100 and we established at full blown Pup perimeter. Irma and pup appear well. By the size and condition of the pup I’d say last night or wee hours this morning for the birth. Thank you to all who showed up today. My minds a blur, but I mos definitely appreciate your responses .
At 1038 Team Billand called from the Reef Runway to advise that Ewa Girl (RS00) had weaned her pup. The pup and Buster (RV08) were at the RR site. A weaner and birth on the same day... July 4th no less!
At 1310 the Billands called again with the report of Benny (RE74) and Pohaku (RO28) at Paradise Cove.
So yesterday DB referred to Irma and said OIK (only Irma knows)... today Gayle and I decided DBDK (DB doesn't know) :-)
Irma and Pup WOW! Look at that bleach mark!!!!
We'll be able to tell this kid from a mile away with that flipper tip!
Buster visiting the weaner... or was he looking for Ewa Girl
Wonder if this little girl understands what has happened
Be gentle there Buster
Benny woooing Miss Pohaku
