At 0630 I arrived at Makai Pier to find Aukai (RL12) up in the Morning Glory, left of 1BS on Rabbit Island. She would move down and depart at 0812, however, I would see her again at 1328.
On a pan at 0632 I found Kaiwi (RK96), 60 ft left of Seal Rock Inlet.
At 0714 Kekoa (RK72) would haul out to join her. After brief interaction, both would enter the water. On a pan at 0933 I would find Kaiwi partially visible behind the water front rocks of mid Middle Cliff. She had obviously given Kekoa the slip. She would remain there the rest of the day.
At 0928 on a pan I found Kainoa (RN04), and Kekoa briefly hauled out to the far left end of the beach. They would almost immediately return to the water and remained visible during a play session ranging from 1BS to 2BS through the rest of the morning.
At 1226 what would prove to be Nani (RK60) hauled out to 1BS. Close behind came Kekoa & Kainoa. Nani’s molt is 100%, and without her RK60 bleach, getting an ID on her is going to be difficult.
I was saved today at 1358 when Aukai (RL12) hauled out to join the other 3 at 1BS. Both Nani & Aukai hung out together with the boys nearby for the remainder of the day.
The Billands called at 0759 advising that volunteer Terri had reported Pohaku (RO28) at Paradise Cove.
Dana called at 0806 advising that Terri had seen the N28 bleach.
The Billands checked her at 0855. Diane T called at 1250 to advise that Pohaku had departed, however she called again at 1313 to advise that Pohaku was back. Finally, at 1341 Diane T advised that Pohaku had once again departed. I guess Pohaku wanted a good seat for the Arashi concert !
Marilyn, Lesley & Lori trekked to the end of the world, as usual on a Saturday. Alas, the Ka’ena Point adventure yielded only Ka’ena (RO40) in Ka’ena’s Pool.
At 1315 Team Billand checked in with the report of Kolohe (RW22) once again at Guard Rails beach.
At 1351 they found Nihoa (R912) at Keaau’s.
