RW02 "Kauai”. He doesn't seem to have started his molt, although I didn't see his belly. No signs we're needed since we had the beach to ourselves.
Next I found R912 "Nihoa" @ Hidden Beach. I did outreach with a cool family that was camping and they told me she was there last night. On my way back she was still there. I did more outreach with a new group of visitors.
The tide was low but the swell sets were washing pools and beaches.
I found R303 "BG" was in her pool @ KPt. She was washed by a bigger set and left. I was lucky to ID her just on time.
RO40 "Ka'ena" was in his pool. He was also washed around, he went for a swim around the pool and opted to stay in there. He was there on my way back.
RR70 "Rip" was @ Back Beach. He also overnighted. I could see his trail (and other signs he left behind). He didn't seem to want to go into the water but the sets were washing him from side to side to the delight of some hikers that were observing him with me while we did a Q&A session. “Rip” gave up and let the backwash take him into the deep. We saw him foraging on the outer reefs
The last call of the day came in reporting a seal out on Alan Davis side. Since I was in the area I responded to it. Way back, in the very back of the Estuary in the middle of the mangrove I found T990 / 4DV. He was last seen a week ago hanging around Wailupe.
