sorry DB this made me laugh a little... not at you but with you. In all seriousness it's actually a comfort to know HPD is out there checking up on things at the beach.... and would actually take the time to make a call for a seal... in the middle of the night. :-)
At 0500 I was on the road and at 0517 still in darkness, I found T990 at that Irma’s location. I cordoned him off, and he has remained all day. We picked up the rope and left the signs. When we departed after dark T990 was still there.
At 0623 I found an U/U doing 7 minute dives at Blowhole. Buster is my guess but as usual ????? He was still there on Marilyn’s 1700 check.
At 0754 I found Kainoa (RN04) 40 ft left of 1BS on Rabbit Island. He would be the only visible RI resident today. His molt is 50%.
Team Billand checked in at 0615 with the report of M&M (R020) fronting #1708, White Plains.
At 1315 they called with the report of Kolohe (RW22) at Maili Point.
