9/16/2014 Report Update from Lesley

Three volunteers go out on a mission and none reports the one finding of the day, probably cause one thought the other one was going to do it.

I choose the scenic route to go meet Diane, on my way I stopped @ Blowhole to look at the big south swell and met DB there doing a morning check. Shortly after another of my stops I saw him walking down Makai Pier.

Diane & I did our usual stops searching for seals along the Windward coast from Kualoa, Kaaawa, Punalu'u, Hauula, Ponders, Laie, Malaekahana, Kahuku BP, Marconi Rd / out to High Rock. We picked up Karen T. on our way, stopped for lunch then did the TBR monitoring.

Our only find was RK82 "La'akea" @ Kaihalulu Beach (main beach @ Right Spot's spot) - she is looking beautiful in her new coat.

We swept Kaihalulu Beach towards "Elbow Beach" and did not see a sign of haul out / trails. It doesn't look like the seals have been using the beach there for several weeks now.

With the exception of Karen & Diane reports, and sometimes Dr. Tom we haven't had any other seal sighting calls. 
We have already checked-in to solve the issue of the disappearance and misplacing of the signs @ TBR.   Aloha, Lesley
