10/21/2014 Lesley's Waikiki and Ka'ena Point Monitoring

As I was getting our the door to drive out to NS to do the KPt monitoring I was asked to check Waikiki for a seal that had hauled out last night. I walked back and forth from WAQ to Duke's statue, spoke to HPD Officer and to Ocean Safety no one had seen or had any report of a seal.
I made it to KPt late. As I drove past Camp Erdman I stopped to check on an again overnighted RW02 "Kauai". He's looking skinny but very handsome in his new coat.
After checking in at Kimo's house and unloading the car I headed out to KPt solo. 
RN58 "Luana" has been hauling out at 10mts beach and that's where I found her. Sleeping peacefully. On my way back she was still there, had moved up because of tide and had a stick fence around her.
At the point I found RK36 "Kauai Kolohe" sleeping on the pebble beach near the water line.
@4:30PM made it back to the house after checking again on RW02 "Kauai PV"
It was a pleasant hike today, among some breef showers. They are lots of big puddles left over from "Ana" as well as some mud.
We'll be back out tomorrow  Aloha,  Lesley
