The photos of RK96 "Kaiwi" were taken on Thursday by posse Jessica. Yesterday I didn't find her at the pools but Nat from Island Divers reported seeing her when diving at Sea Cave. He was going to send photos but I have not yet received them.

RB24 "Hauupu" is still hanging around Waialua on a pre molt behavior.
Have a nice wkend, L.
