At 1006 , what would prove to be Buster (RV08) hauled out left of Seal Rock Inlet, and would remain on the water front rocks all day.
At 1227 on a routine pan I discovered that I had a new arrival, partially visible amongst the rocks to the right of Seal Rock Inlet. I was able to determine that it was a male, with a new coat, but nothing more was possible so U/M it is.
At 1246 Kainoa (RN04) hauled out, 80 ft right of 3BS.
At 1001 Team Billand found Pohaku (RO28) at Maili Point, with RIP (RR70) sneakin’ up behind her. They would have words and both departed at 1015, only to return at 1307.
At 1055 they found Haupu (RB24) at Lagoon #2, KoOlina. A DanaText at 1822 advised that Haupu had just departed.
In the Yesterday’s News department, Kimo Smith sent shots from The End of the World, from his Ka’ena Pt trek yesterday.
In yesterday’s blog I included shots from Rikki Goble, and I identified an animal as Luana. I have an “Oooops” to fess’ up to. TracyMail, as well as Kimo’s report both clarified the animal as Kaikaina (RL57). Kimo found Ka’ena (RO40) at Hidden Beach, and RW02, BG(R303)& Kaikaina (RL57) at the point. Whew ! At least it wasn't me this time... I'm usually the one who makes all the mistakes!
While on the subject of news from previous days.... I was told there was a hotline call over the weekend of a seal "lolling" off Lanikai beach... I asked several kayak guides I know and a few people I know in the neighborhood if they knew anything.... a couple of people did see a seal around Lanikai ( not hauled out) over the weekend and they all said it seemed fine. Kayak guide told be there was a seal on Mokulua Island on Monday.... away from the main beach up by queens' bath too far for anyone to get a picture or bother.... seal was described as smaller and no obvious markings. Not much to go on but a U/U in and around Lanikai.
