11-23-2013 DB's Dailies: M38&Aukai@RI, Kaiwi&Kea@BF, Kea@Eternity Bch, Makaiwi&Benny@WP, Kermit@WSK, Pohaku@Sec, Rocky@KK, R912,RW02,Kerby,RIP&Ka'ena@KP
On my 0600 check of the Cove at SB I found that Kea was gone. I picked up the stuff and continued the adventure.
At 0738 I found a 10% molted RM38 at Rocky Right Beach, on Rabbit Island.
At 0922 Aukai (RL12) hauled out to mid Middle Cliff. Both critters would remain all day.
At 0940 posse member Christian called with the report of "RK97" at Buster Flats. That, of course, is Kaiwi (RK96). She went to Rabbit Island on 10-19-13 for her annual molt. She has remained there ever since, until today. The new & improved Kaiwi model is back in business !
Christian called again at 1012 to ask who "N46" was. He had spoken with diver posse person Paul Hasley who had told him that he had photographed Kaiwi & Kea . I spoke with Paul shortly thereafter. Photos are forthcoming. This marks the first documented sighting of Kea beyond Eternity Beach.
....and speaking of Eternity Beach, while I was still at LL I got a call from another Paul posse person at 1059 reporting the "N46" had hauled out to Eternity Beach. When I arrived at 1104 Kea was still there and the hordes were within inches of him. I managed to get the mob moved back and began to put up a cordon, but he thankfully departed at 1127. Despite further searching for him I didn’t see him again.
At 0709 Team Billand called with the report of Makaiwi, once again fronting #1708, and Benny (RE74) down the beach a tad fronting #1706, at White Plains. They most probably overnighted. The Billands reported Benny’s departure at 1710.
At 0756 began to follow a foraging Kermit (R012) at Nimitz Jetty, moving east. At 0813 he hauled out to Wind Sock. Happily, no hook was seen today.
At 1020 they reported Pohaku (RO28) at Secrets , KoOlina.
Marilyn , Lesley &Tia did the usual Saturday Ka’ena Point trek from the Mokuleia side. At 0830 they found R912 at Hidden Beach on the trek in. At the point they found RW02 near the Runway, Kerby (RW08) at the main beach, and our #1 & #4 sons, RIP (RR70)& Ka’ena (RO40) (Irma’s boys) together on the back beach.
Posse member Linda called at 1400 to advise that Rocky (RH58)was newly arrived to her backyard, at Irma’s Grotto, Kokee Flats, Portlock.
