6-14-2014 DB's Dailies: Buster@BH, RIP,Kolohe,Kainoa&Pua@RI, Ka'ena,Luana&UU@ KP, R5ay@Bathtub Beach, Laie

At 0625 I found what would prove to be Buster (RV08) doing 5 minute dives at Blowhole. He remained there all day.

 At 1030 I found RIP (RR70) & Kolohe (RW22) together at the far left end of the beach on Rabbit Island. I also found Kainoa (RW04) fronting Left Greenery on RI.

 On a pan at 1052 I found Pua (RF34) just hauling out to the left end rock flats.

 Gayle called at 1138 with the report of Kaiwi (RK96) at the Kokee Flats, Portlock.

 Marilyn & Lesley did the Ka’ena Point trek today. Marilyn called at 0945 with the report of Ka’ena (RO40) at the Runway, and Luana (RN58) outside the Main Pool . She would later haul out, and at 1041 Marilyn reported Kerby (RW08) joined her.

 At 1039 Marilyn advised of the arrival of an U/U to Kerby & Luana, and all three entered the water.

 AT 1303 Marilyn advised that they found Luana just hauling out to Hidden Beach, KP. Luana was said to look a bit tired on her haul out.

 Dana called at 1035 with the report of an U/U at Bathtub Beach, Laie. At 1645 she called to  day that she’d gotten tag confirmation of R5AY.  oh I wish there was a picture... wonder how she's doing... are we going to have a pup?

 End of day email from Team Billand brought news of a rare “skunked” day.  wish that meant that Team Billand actually got some rest.... but I am sure the spent the day trudging through all the sand. The only good news, they didn't have to fight off the crowds.

Aloha "Da log Lady",
R5AY "Honey Girl" already had a pup this year. Little RF20 "Meli" (F b.2014Jan10). We monitored her thru her molt and after that she started putting on back some weight.
The caller that reported her today said she was out resting on some reefs between Laie and Ponders area is known as Bath Tub.
She confirmed the ID by the 5AZ tag.
Have a nice day!

omg - you're right.... it was so early in the year and in my mind we "usually" see june/july.... Anyway... it will be good to see how she is doing. Not to mention Ewa Girl and of course our beloved Irma.
