On my umpteenth Sandy Beach check, at 1123 I found Buster (RV08) on the water front rocks, at the Blowhole end of Sandy Beach. I cordoned him off and he has remained all day. Buster remained at dark. Gayle picked up the stuff and we called it a day .
Despite a whole a lotta’ miles, and a whole lotta’ lookin’, D#59 was our first “I No Kea” day in the SE quadrant. Much Mahalos to Gayle & Melanie.
A call from Tracy brought news that Makaiwi (R4DF) was on Maui today. No doubt on her way back to Kona.
In the waaay before Yesterday’s News department, a new posse member, Charles, whom I met with Buster this morning , sent me photos of Irma at Sandy Beach, circa 2009, and a neat underwater shot at Hanauma Bay taken around 11-2011 showing a 3 month old Kaiwi (with transmitter) and an U/U. Thank You Charles.
