At 0606 I found Irma (R010) & Benny (RE74) together at Kaupo Beach Park. I put up a cordon and they remained until departing of their own volition at 1207.
A fisherman posse person advised that he had seen Kea (RN6) at the west side of the AD wall at 0630. He was not there when I arrived at 0700. At 0847 I spied the swimming head of Kea out at the surf line, swimming east. At 0907 I found him again this time swimming west. At 0940 he hauled out, 175 yds east of the wall. I put up and SPZ. Gayle advised that Kea entered the water at 1256, only to haul out again, 125 yds east of the wall. We redid the SPZ. He has remained there in snooze mode the rest of the day.
Ocean Safety called at 1006 with the report of an animal on the main beach at Sandy Beach. When I arrived at 1012 I found Buster (RV08) fronting the "Middles" break. I cordoned him off. He was gone on my 1227 recheck.
Team Billand reported Makaiwi (R4DF) at KoOlina at 0707. She would relocate to the Kalaeloa Deep Draft Harbor, and back again.
Marilyn & Lesley did the Ka’ena Point trek, and reported RL42 at the main beach, and Ka’ena (RO40) at Ka’ena’s Pool at 1117.
They also spent time at the Mokuleia pup site with Luana & RW02.
Ocean Safety called at 1251 with the report of an animal in Nanakuli. It would be gone when the Billands arrived.
At 1338 Team Billand found Pohaku (RO28) at Secrets.
Irma and Benny
Luana and RW02
RL42 (weaner Luana's older sister)
amazingly strong seal
She's probably resting here thinking if she hauls out there might be someone waiting for her.... as long as she is resting that is what is most important
