At 0655 I peered into the cove on the Sandy Beach side of the Blowhole Lookout and there was Kea (RN04) snoozin’ in the cove. He has remained all day.
At 0720 I found Sadie&Pup (RB12)(S#11), 20 ft left of 1BS on Rabbit Island. A feed was in progress. This is a new location for them so I presume they had done an early morning water session. I would see 2 swim sessions in rough water, and 3 feeds.
Also at 0720 I found the same U/F , 20 ft right of 1BS, and Kainoa (RN04) at Right Middle Cliff. It took a while but I finally got a look at his CC wound. Healing continues.
At 1405 posse member June called to advise that Maureen (the Dove Lady) had called her to report an animal just hauling out to Sandy Beach. When I arrived at 1415 I found T21M at the east end. He is 100% molted, and his forehead natural bleach was clearly visible. I picked up the rope at dark. T21M remains.
At 0716 Team Billand reported RIP (RR70) at the showers, White Plains. Lifeguards advised that he departed at 1630.
At 0752 the Billands found Kermit (R012) foraging off shore of Kermit’s Reef. At 0843 he took a fisherman’s line, which broke. When he hauled out at the first bunker, west of the Nimitz Jetty the Billands checked for a hook and saw nothing, but their check was no 100%. The Billands advise that Kermit later relocated to a new location approximately 1 mile west of the Jetty.
At 0752 the Billands advised that they’d gotten a call from Terri reporting 2 animals at Paradise Cove. She thought one was Pohaku. When they Billands arrived later they found only Nihoa (R912).
At 1014 posse member Christian Young called to advise that Rocky (RH58) was below the Lighthouse, Diamond Head. Colleen Melanie were also with her at various points, as well as Todd&Darlene (the Van’s from Can) providing info and shots. Colleen advised that Rocky was still there at dark.
At 1328 they found Benny (RE74) at Maili Point.
Evening email from Kimo Smith brought shots of his day at Ka’ena Point. He found Ka’ena, RW02,RW30 & RL42 at the end of the world.
