At 0732 I found Kainoa (RN04) tucked into the base of the Naupaka at Left Greenery on Rabbit Island. His N0 bleach became visible with the improving lighting.
At 0748 I found what would prove to be Buster (RV08) and Kekoa (RN04) together, also tucked into the Naupaka at Right Greenery. It was a warm fuzzy moment knowing that Buster, 8 y.o. and Kekoa , 2 ½ y.o are big brother and little brother. Yep, they are both sons of Ewa Girl !
I did an afternoon Kokee Flats check, knowing that Rocky is an afternoon kinda’ girl. Sure enough just as I reached Irma’s Grotto at 1451, therrrre was Rocky just galumphing up onto the rocks. Thank you Rocky for allowing me the illusion that I have a clue.
At 0813 the Billands found Kermit (R012) foraging off shore of Nimitz Jetty. He would finally haul out to Wind Sock at 0952.
Ewa Girl (RS00) showed up off shore of WSK at 1025, and Kermit entered the water to join her. They would both haul out together to WSK, at 1300.
At 1025 the Billands called to say that they had gotten word of Benny and an UU at Makaha. It would take a while to get there but the identified Benny (RE74) at Makaha Surf, and Pohaku (RO28)at a separate location, at the west end of Makaha.
At 1121 the Billands reported Haupu (RB24) and RIP (RR70) hauling out together at Tower#1, White Plains.
Kimo Smith checked in from the end of the world at Ka’ena Point at 1227, reporting Ka’ena (RO40) and RW02. He advised that he saw no hook in Ka’ena’s RFF . Awaiting photos.
At 1345 the Billands advised that M&M (R020) arrived at Tower#1, WP. At 1345 they advised that all three animal entered the water, staying in the near shore waters. At 1445 they reported M&M and RIP hauled out again to Tower#1. Haupu was gone.
New hotline voice Nicole called at 1405 with the report of an UU at Turtle Bay. The photo she provided from tourist, Magdalena, confirmed the Right Spot (R016) ID. Michelle Jordan also sent photos but Right Spot was lying on her right side at the time.
At 1709 Team Billand found Kerby (RW08) at Maili Point.
