3-29-2014 DB's Dailies:Sadie,Mojo,Kainoa,Aukai&U/F@RI, R018@Nimitz Cottages, Ewa Girl @ WSK, Ka'ena&RW02@ KP

At 0653 I began a day of Sadie Watch duty. I found her at the far left end of Rabbit Island, at yesterday’s location. There still was no pup. Also there , but well away from her was an U/F juvenile animal that remained all day, but I was never able to confirm an ID.

At 0847 Mojo (RI17) galumphed out of the water to join Sadie. He was her constant companion for the rest of the day, whether she liked it or not.
At 1040 Kainoa (RN04) & Aukai (RL12) hauled out together , 30 ft right of 1BS, just below the Morning Glory. They would remain the rest of the day.
At 0900 Dana called to advise that she had sent photos of an U/U at Nimitz Cottages. When I checked the photos at 0930 I found that it was R018. Thank you Susan for the shots.
Marilyn checked in at 0957 from the end of the world. She, Lesley & Ken had done the usual Ka’ena Point trek, apparently with MANY others. They initially found Ka’ena (RO40) . He would be joined at 1020 by RW02.

Vera Cober called at 0926 with the report of Ewa Girl (RS00) at Wind Sock. Unfortunately he camera decided to die today, so she was left with all the talent in the world , and no camera !
