1-30-2014 DB's Dailies:
On my first look at Blowhole Lookout this morning at 0718 I noticed and animal just galumphing into the water in the small cove on the Sandy Beach side of the Blowhole Lookout. It proved to be Buster (RV08) . The ID was from his partial molt. He entered the water and made a right turn and headed west. Despite lots of lookin’ I did not see him again today.
At 0758 I found what would prove to be Kolohe (RW22) once again in the Morning Glory fronting 1BS on Rabbit Island. When I got back to Makai Pier he had moved down to cool off, and remained all day, moving up with the rising tide.
Thank you to Gayle and Melanie for all the hard miles.
