9/27/2014 DB's Dailies: Nani,Duke&Kaiwi@RI, Rocky@Kaimana,Buster@HB&SB, Ka'ena,RIP&RW02@KP, Pohaku&U'ilani@PC

First posse member Gene at 0730, and then Jack at the Bay at 0732 called with word of the arrival of an animal to the beach at Hanauma Bay. When I arrived at 0740 I found Buster (RV08) . Obviously, the boy has completed his west side jaunt. We cordoned him off. Much Mahalos to all th HB staff who contributed to Buster’s comfort today. He would depart at 1057.

At 0929 I found Kaiwi (RK96) in the Morning Glory, 60 ft right of 3BS. She has begun her molt. D#1, 5%.

At 0955 on a pan I found Duke (RA12) fronting 1BS.

Again on a pan at 1200 I found Nani (RK60) newly arrived to join Duke.

 A note on Rabbit Island locations. I’ve attached a map of RI showing the reference points that I use all the time. Hopefully, that will help you follow the game. The three Blue , Keep Off Island signs are referred to as 1BS..2BS etc. LPB is Left Point Beach, SRI is Seal Rock Inlet, and RRB is Rocky Right Beach.

 Ever since finding Buster at HB this morning I was waiting for the other Buster shoe to drop. Drop it did, with a call from Ocean Safety at 1500 reporting an animal at the Blowhole end of Sandy Beach. Marilyn did the SPZ at 1510,and confirmed the Buster (RV08) ID. He remained at dark.

 At 0952 Team Billand called to advise that they’d gotten a call about 2 reported seals at Paradise Cove. When they arrived at 1048 they found only Pohaku (RO28). Witnesses said there had been another, smaller animal there, but it had been run off the people getting too close.

 At some point the animal returned, and at 1600 Diane T., called to report an RN36 tag, which is U’ilani ! She has never been known to venture out that way, so her arrival is a biggy !! Thanks to Diane T, Laurie D, and Carrie. Diane called at 1819 to advise that U’ilani had departed.

Marilyn, Lesley & Ken trekked to the end of the world again today. At 1042 Marilyn called to advise that they had found Ka’ena (RO40) and RIP (RR70) at Ka’ena Point. Ken would later advise that he had found RW02 at Hidden Beach on his way out.

 Evening email from Diane Gabriel brought word that Rocky (RH58) was at Kaimana again today. I had not gotten the word. Thank You Diane.

I just wanted to say Thank You for explaining the Rabbit Island codes and the picture of the map. I will refer to it often until I can learn the codes and locations.
