At 0710 I found Buster (RV08) snoozin’ in the small cove on the Sandy Beach side of the Blowhole Lookout. He would remain all day. Gayle advised that he was gone on her 1638 check.
At 0800 I found Kainoa (RN04) at the right edge of the Morning Glory, at 1BS on Rabbit Island. When I got back in the afternoon he had moved down to cool off near the water line .
When I got back to Makai Pier at 1344 I found that Kolohe (RV08) and Aukai (RL12) had hauled out together fronting 1BS, on RI. With 40 mph winds, with gust to 45 mph, getting shots was impossible.
At 1157 as I was trudging down to check the grotto at the Kokee Flats, I noticed a small face looking at me from just off the flats in shallow water. It was Kea (RN46). I’d last seen the little dude on 1-25-14. He was foraging and finding something on every dive. He would begin moving further out into the bay. My last sighting was at 1214. When I spoke with Gayle about me find she told me that she had seen a small animal for just a second at Spitting Cave, before this encounter. Chances are good that it was the kid.
At 0841 the Billands advised of an animal at Maili. The said Rachel was going. At 1000 it would prove to be Pohaku (RO28), at Guard Rails Beach.
Rachel also advised of the arrival of another animal at 1000 . The Billands would confirm
the Haupu (RB24) ID at Nanakai Beach.
Dana also reported an U/U at Lagoon #4 At KoOlina at 1000. She advised that BJ was going. At 1055 the Billands confirmed the Haupu (RB24) ID.
At 1356 the Billands advised that M&M had arrived at White Plains. RIP had galumphed to the water to join in her the shallows. The Billands reported that they later hauled out together at Tower#1, WP.
At 1428 the Billands advised at Eileen had called reporting Ewa Girl (RS00) at the Reef Runway.
Ocean Safety called at 1638 with word on the arrival of an U/U to Makaha Beach. The Billands advised that Debbie was responding. She confirmed the Benny (RE74) ID at 1658.
Diane Gabriel sent R5AY&Pup shots from her shift today at Turtle Bay.
