At 0648 I found T990 amongst the Mangroves at his favorite AD estuary spot. He was still there, but snoozin’ in the shallows on my 1200 recheck. Lesley called at 1611 to advise that he was still there. 

At 0735, I found Kainoa (RN04) in the Morning Glory, 40 ft left of 1BS on Rabbit Island. He would move down allowing the ID and remained there all day.

At 0814 on a pan I found an 85% molted Duke (RA12) just hauling out to 3BS. He too remained the rest of the day.

Gayle called at 1113 with the report of Kaiwi (RK96) all decked out in her new coat, on Buster Flats, Lanai Lookout. I also checked her at 1240.  Lesley called at 1611 to advise that she was still there.

Team Billand called at 0723 with the report of Haupu (RB24) fronting #1811, Nimitz Cottages. She would depart at 1400.

Marilyn, Lesley& Minnesota Melanie did the usual Saturday, end of the world trek. Marilyn called at 0837 advising that they had found Nihoa (R912) at the Dillingham end of Camp Erdman, and RW02 at the Mokuleia end. On the way home RW02 had joined Nihoa at her location.

At the point she called at 1113 with the report of BG (R303) in BG’s pool, and Ka’ena (RO40) with a short visit from an Benny (RE74) at the main pool. BG has begun her molt.

Karen Turner was out and around at Turtle Bay and beyond. She found Ua Maile (RT10) at High Rock, and Kaikaina (RL54) at the elbow, Kaihalulu Beach, TB.
