11-1-2013 DB's Dailies: Buster@BH, Kaiwi,Aukai,Kainoa,Duke&Nani@RI, Kea@SB, Irma@IRQ, Kermit@NIM

At 0621 I found Buster (RV08) doing 10 minute dives at Blowhole. A couple of hours later I rechecked and he was gone, but in a couple more hours on another re-recheck he was back. Alas on my last check of the day he was once again gone. I saw him nowhere else today.
At 0725 I found Kaiwi (RK96) at 3BS, with Kainoa (RN04) just a little below her. I also found Aukai (RL12), sporting her new bleach, 60 ft right of 3BS. I’m happy to say that Kaiwi has finally begun her molt. At end of day she was a conservative 2% molted.
At 1138 Duke (RA12) & Nani (RK60) hauled out together to 3BS. They would remain there the rest of the day.
At 1154 I found Kolohe (RW22) just hauling out to 1BS on RI.
At 1554 on my umpteenth check I found Kea (RN04) new arrived to the rocks at Crappy Cove, Sandy Beach. I cordoned him off and he remains.
Team Billand called at 0637 to advise that Clay Gates had called to report that Irma (R010) had overnighted at Iroquois Pt.
At 741 the Billands advised that they were following Kermit (R012) as he foraged in the Nimitz Beach area. At 0757 he hauled out to the #1813 pavilion at Nimitz Beach. The Billands advised that Kermit departed at 1508 an resumed foraging activities.

Tracy sent mail with shots, of Makaiwi (R4DF) happy and well on Kauai. Her wound continues to heal. Barbara spoke with her pal Mary and she advised that Makaiwi was at Larsen’s today with Rocky’s pup, and Haupu’s older brother.

Kermit continues his adventures going from Nimitz Cove to Windsock and once again, does the entire route.

The pretty girl in bikini was doing her chant and hula when Mr. Kermit decided to haul up near by.

We watched Kermit foraging many hours in the am, and then again in pm. He was awesome with that hind flippers thrashing about, right and left. Then he would like float to swallow what ever he got hold of and continue his foraging. It was spectacular, a little spooky with the guys fishing, but some how, that fat boy Kermit made it ok, OVER AND OVER.

He even followed some sardines to the reef shallows, then pushed his snout in the holes to get the fish. Smart yuh?

I think, Kermit, our FAT BOY, is one of my Favorite seals...always shows us how a seal forages, then goes to his haul out spot to rest and digest his food.

And he even went cruising along the shore line, looking for chicks, but never found no ladies. Thats ok, he continued to PIG OUT instead.

Love you make me smile all the time. God bless you fat boy. Seal ya tomorrow!!!!
