Also at 0812 I also found Kainoa (RN04), 60 ft right of 3BS.
Gayle called at 0853 with the report of what would prove to be RIP (RR70), and what was initially an U/U. When Gayles photos came in, it would prove to be Kekoa (RK72). ID was by his right face scar.
Team Billand reported Benny (RE74) at Paradise Cove at 0901. Thank you Nancy for the help.
Canadian posse members, Todd & Darlene called from their 9th floor, Gold Coast Condo in Waikiki at 1000 to advise that they had seen 2 animals swimming to the west at Kaimana Beach. The larger of the two tried to haul out by the adoring hordes would not allow it. Seconds after Darlene’s call I got a call from Ocean Safety (Lifeguards) reporting a single animal hauled out to the small piece of sand on the Aquarium side of the Natatorium, but called back almost immediately to advise that the animal was back in the water and swimming to the west. There was no further word on either animal.
My pal Val called at 1415 to advise that she was in the company of Kerby (RW08) on Kauai. She pronounced him happy & well. This Rabbit Island boy has covered alotta’ ground in his young life !
