7/11/2015 DB's Dailies:Cass&Aukai@RI, Ua Malie&PO3@TB, Makaiwi@Makaha, Ka'ena@KP, RL42@Makua Cliffs,

On my 2nd look at Rabbit I found Aukai (RL12), 30 ft right of 3BS.

 On a pan at 0943 I found Cass (RG06) just hauling out to the left end rock flats. Both would remain at the those locations all day.

 A 1402 call from lifeguard posse member , Billy, reported an animal trying to haul out to the east end of Sandy Beach, with the adoring hordes once again right in it’s face , camera phones in hand. Just as we arrived at the scene, Billy called to say that the animal had departed. We never saw it. We relocated to Blowhole for an overview but never saw anybody. We checked Crappy Cove and Irma’s but that too was a bust.

 At 0708 volunteers Gina W., and Rikki reported in from the Ua&PO3 site at Turtle Bay. Mom & pup were just finishing a swim session. The checked in again at the end of the shift, having found no other critters.

 Vera Cober also worked the Ua&PO3 site today, and sent her usual outstanding photo contributions. 

At 0714 Team Billand reported Makaiwi (R4DF) right of the Hawaiian Princess Condo, Makaha.

Posse member/NOAA Intern, Sam Murphy texted from the End of the World with the report of Ka’ena (RO40) at Ka’ena Point.

 Team Billand came through again at 1056 with a report of finding RL42 at Makua Cliffs.

 perspective is everything... although this is probably a little too close for comfort
 I had to enlarge this photo... I honestly thought it was a net.... made my heart skip a couple of beats
 RL42  I can Flyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
