For the first time in 20 consecutive days I looked over the edge at 0600 at Makapuu Beach and Irma was GONE !!!! Thank you God & Thank you Irma. I’ve done the Makapuu Trudge , twice at a day (at least) for all 20 days. Hopefully the girl is back on the road in her new coat.
At 1410 Melanie called to advise that people at the Kea site had mentioned an animal at the Blowhole end of Sandy Beach. When I arrived t 1418 I found Irma (R010). She had apparently been there since 1100, but the lifeguard calling me had my number transposed, and I never got the call. Marilyn reported that Irma was still there at dark.
At 07545 I found Kaiwi (RK96) fronting 3BS on Rabbit Island. She has remained all day.
Ast 0818 I found Kolohe (RW22) up in the Morning Glory, 60 ft left of 1BS on RI. He too has remained all day.
Marilyn called at 0824 to advise that Kea (RN46) was just hauling out to Crappy Cove, Sandy Beach. When I arrived we cordoned him off & he remains. Thank you Marilyn, Melanie & Gayle ! I closed up at dark. Kea was still there.
At 1116 I spied two swimming heads, playing in the off shore waters of RI, fronting 3BS. When they hauled out at 1118 they proved to be Kainoa (RN04), and Nani (RK60). They snoozed away the rest of the day.
Cianna checked in at 0919 with the report of an animal at Laie Point. Awaiting further word.
At 930 Dana called to advise that Tia had reported that Haupu (RB24) had overnighted at Crozier Dr., Waialua. Confirming photos received.
Team Billand called at 0926 to advise that Buster (RV08) had arrived at #1707, White Plains, and was announcing his presence with gusto. He would later relocate to "Al’s Bench", Kalaeloa Campgrounds, and then return to White Plains, fronting #1708. The boy is in full cruiser male mode.
Team Billand found Pohaku (RO28) at Maili, Guard Rails at 1354.
Karen Turner sent shots from her session at Mokuleia with Luana, and what I believe to be Mama, R912, based on the head scar and the 2 white nails on the left fore flipper. Later she found La’akea at Turtle Bay, pole dancing.
Apparently Irma didn't want to be THAT FAR away from the seal whisperer
Kainoa and Nani
her HIS morning stretches
and now she's being just silly
Hauupu overnight at Crozier Drive
thank you Tia
La'akea learning to work the pole

and spin... ummm I need a stronger pole please
R912 looking pretty healthy
Buster boy at white plains
fisherman and seal
ummmm Buster hold on there buddy... this dude was minding his own business
I am sure there is a story behind this... Team Billand must have been having a mini heart attack.
Okay then... something is happening here.... lots of thrashing
Pohaku resting peacefully
