12-6-2013 DB's Dailies: RM38&Kaiwi@RI, Benny,Buster,Makaiwi,M&m@WP, Pohaku@Nanakuli, U'ilani@Kewalo Basin, Kermit@KR, RIP,Ka'ena,RK36&RW02@KP
At 0719 I found RM38 in the Morning Glory at 1BS, and Kaiwi (RK96) at 3BS , on Rabbit Island. M38 would relocate to the far left end water line to cool off, and Kaiwi would later enter the water only to haul out again at 1BS where she spent the rest of the day.
At 0652 Team Billand reported Benny (RE74) at #1707, and Buster (RV08)&Makaiwi (R4DF) at #1760, White Plains. All appeared to have over nighted again. As has been the case of late, Buster would depart at 0835, check out Benny and then swam off. The Billands reported that Buster had returned at 1700, and once again hauled out to join Benny & M&M at #1707.
At 0909 Ocean Safety called with the report of an animal a Nanakuli Beach Park. The Billands would confirm the Pohaku (RO28) ID at 1022.
Lesley called at 1221 to advise of a hotline call reporting U’ilani (RN36) in Kewalo Basin. ID was by tag.
At 1310 Team Billand reported Kermit (R012) at Kermit’s Reef.
Afternoon email from Tracy brought shots of a 75% molted Ka’ena (RO40), a 90% molted RIP (RR70), as well as RK36 & RW02, all at Ka’ena Pt.
At 1328 they advised that M&M (R020) had hauled out to join Benny at #1707, WP
looking better from this side
Ka'ena and RK36
Benny and MM
this poor dude needs some man-scaping
MM and Buster
wonder if Buster is Benny's son.... much of his behavior is similar
gives meaning to chasing tail
very pretty and peaceful miss MM
Buster moving on and staying close to Ms Maka'iwi
beach erosion makes hauling out an extra effort
Maka'iwi will feel better and look better pretty soon
Kermit at Kermits Reef
Pohaku at Nanakuli
