R912 "Nihoa" was the first find of the day while I was waiting for the ladies to join me. She was near Camp Erdman / Mokuleia working on her molt ~ 15 / 20% . On the way back from the KPt hike we checked on her again she had entered the water and hauled out closer to the camp. I went up and did some out reach with Monitors and students - groups took turns to go watch her from behind the Naupaka bushes. All very respectful and happy to see the "real" thing
At Hidden Beach RR70 "Rip" was baking near the water line. He entered the water and we were lucky to see him haul out again when we returned from the Point.
RW08 "Kerby" was molting away on the Runway ~ 40/50%
The big surprise was to find little RN58 "Luana" on her first visit to the point. Definitely earlier than her sister made it last year. She was hauled out on the beach between RW02 our Kauai (now nearly permanent) visitor and RO40 "Ka'ena" in a tide pool.
