At 0900 a brief arrival and departure of an U/M to the group, motivated Buster to depart. There was no interaction at all. Buster just didn’t wanna’ play the game. The U/M left shortly thereafter. I saw neither again today, though I was on Buster patrol at Sandy Beach multiple times today, waiting for the other Buster shoe to drop.
After the males departed that left Sadie & Kainoa (mom & son) on the beach. At 0940 Pau (RF34) hauled out to join them (Mom, son & daugther) !. Pua and Kainoa interacted and with Kainoa in the lead , both entered the water at 0946. They would haul out, together still to rejoin Mom (Sadie) at 1200.
At 1207 I was taking a break from RI observations, (okay , I was going to da’ john), when I spied a likely looking rock, on the strip of beach between Makai Pier & Kaupo Beach Park. I immediately relocated and found that it was a very plump, Makaiwi (R4DF). I put up signs on the approaches to her and monitored her the rest of the day. Makaiwi was gone on my 1745 recheck.
At 0757 Team Billand reported RIP (RR70) & M&M fronting Tower#2 at White Plains.
At 1003 Amarissa (DOFAW) called to advise that Aukai (RL12) was on Moku Nui today.
At 1125 Team Billand reported Kolohe (RW22) at Maili Point.
At 1427 they reported Nihoa (R912) at LahiLahi Beach, Makaha.
