5/30/2014 Lesley's Ka'ena Point Trek

Marilyn & I did the KPt hike & monitoring today.

As we approached Hidden Beach,Marilyn,that was a little ahead of me, did the sign that there's one seal. From far we saw a weird shape/design on it's back, light? sand? wet? a bleach mark !!! It was RN58 "Luana", she looked so long and big there.

There was a couple camping on the beach, I did some outreach with one them because they had a dog (on a leash, tied to the tent). 

On our way back they were no longer there but in their place there was a group spending the day. More outreach was done.

At the point RO40 "Ka'ena" was hauled out at the entrance of his pool and did a roll or two for us.

As it was still early, we decided to hang around for a while to see if other seals would show up. We walked around the center part of the point saw several Albatross chicks, all fledging as our "Doc" (the one we've been monitoring from the arrival of the parents, nesting, egg,etc.). I even adventured a little dip @ Back Beach.   
Aloha,  Lesley
