At 0756 Jack (at the Bay) called with the report of an animal on the rock flats at the east end of Hanauma Bay. When I arrived at 0815 I found T990 (R4DV). He is one of the “ol’ dudes”, translocated to Molokai in (1994),as an adult. His last and only knows visits to Oahu came on 6-15-14 near the Kahala Hilton, and then again on 6-24-14 in Waikiki. Since then ,according to Tracy, he’d been seen back on Molokai, but today the guy is hangin’ at Hanauma Bay. He would briefly enter the water at 1127, only to haul out again to a spot just 20 ft away from his initial location. Much Mahalos to Jack (at the Bay) for all the hard work. You are most definitely worth many,many times your weight in Guiness !!! We picked up the stuff at closing, and T990 remained. I’ll check him first thing in the morning.
At 1033 I found Duke (RA12) just hauling out 100 ft left of 1BS on Rabbit Island. At 1108 Kainoa (RN04) hauled out not far left of Duke. Duke would notice him and moved to Kainoa’s location. There was lightweight interaction and both entered the water for a swim/play session at 1127.
At 1154 Gayle called with the report of Kaiwi (RK96) at the Lanai Lookout Cove.
At 0651 Team Billand reported RIP (RR70) & M&M (R020) fronting #1708 , White Plains. Mahalos to Jean, Diane Terai & Terri for the hours.
Last , but not least, Happy 3rd Birthday to La’akea (RK82)!!
