We met up with posse member Vicki Hangai at Lanai Lookout this afternoon. She had still photos from her Ka’ena Point trek yesterday, where she found 3 seals. They would prove to be RW02, sporting his new N62 bleach, by himself, and RL42 in the company of Kolohe (RW22).
Surprisingly, the Billands reported a rare “Skunked” day.
A 1726 call from Rikki Goble who had put in an R5AY&Ola shift, brought word that she had responded to the report of an animal at Kahuku Point. Her excellent ID shots, sent via phone, showing the necessary markers for an ID, made it a simple case of researching the photo database to come up with the BG (R303) ID. Thanks Rikki ! Once again.... Ya’ Done Good !!!
Today is the 1st birthday of little Pua (RF34) (Sadie’s daughter). She left Rabbit Island on 7-30-14, and was not seen again until she showed up on 9-14-15, with a fishook. The hook was removed on 9-15-15, and that was the last time Pua was seen. She and her mom and both mystery girls.
A personal note in closing for the night. It was 14 years ago today (Good Friday), that “LuSeal” galumphed into Marilyn & DB’s lives, at Sandy Beach. I was a kinda’/sorta’ “normal “ human being at 0629 on that day. At 0630 the rest of my life began. Congrats !!! Seal whisperer, Sensei, Mentor, .... crazy ole' man :-) :-) THANK YOU for every moment you have spent caring and sharing your life with these animals. I know my life is better for knowing you !!!!
