At 0820 I would find Aukai (RL12), 30 ft left of 3BS. She would remain until the tide got to her at 1432.
Gayle called at 1131 with the report of Kaiwi (RK96) at China Walls. She had not been there on Marilyn’s earlier check. Allow me to take this opportunity to thank Marilyn and Gayle for their Zone#12 treks (seal count day).
At 1351 Marilyn & I were at the pier to observe to female morons land at RI and proceed to explore, running off Kainoa at 1355, and then passing Aukai twice without incident. DOCARE met them upon their return to Kaupo Beach Park, but alas they only got a warning since they were outta’ town Texas visitors. I’m more a capital punishment for the 1st offense kinda’ guy so naturally I was bummed.
At 1300 Marilyn first spied Pua (RF34) foraging off shore of the left end of the island. She and Kainoa would haul out together to the left end flats at 1414. They were back in the water with the rising tide at 1430.
Though Pua had met M38 just yesterday, with no interaction, this was the first observed interaction between Pua and anybody else. Its really neat because in the first place, Kainoa is her older brother (Sadie’s last year pup), and a fellow youngster who was not a threat, and can help her immensely in learning the survival ropes. It was a warm , fuzzy moment. They both returned to the water with the rising tide.
At 1343 on a pan we found Temp401 newly arrived to Rocky Right Beach, on RI . She was still there when we departed.
At 0916 Ocean Safety called with the report of an animal at the Green Lanterns end of Maili Beach Park. Debbie responded and the Billands confirmed the Haupu (RB24) ID at 1000.
At 1309 Team Billand reported Benny (RE74) at Maili Point.
At 1743 The Donna called with a report of somebody on the Mokes today. Awaiting photos.
Diane Gabriel found R5AY today at Kualoa Point. Thanks Diga !!
Last but not least a Happy 1st Birthday to U’ilani, and a belated (ooops) 6th to Kolohe !!!
