On my 2nd look at 0902 I found Cass (RG06) just hauling out to the left end rock flats on RI. Unfortunately , she would galumph to the back of the beach and spend the day out of my line of sight at the base of the cliff. On two occasions through the day I lucked out and glimpsed hind flipper flexes about the rocks, so I knew she was still there.
Both Gayle and I combed the quadrant and found nobody else.
At 0624 Team Billand advised they’d received a call from Nancy, reporting Benny (RE74) at Paradise Cove.
At 0753 the Billands got a call about 2 animals at the Hawaiian Princess Condos. At 0859 they confirmed that Pohaku RO28 has returned from Kauai, and was one of the animals. The other would turn out to be a Kauai male, Tracy called Temp 319. He was given a V9 bleach on his back. He also sports numerous CC scars. Debbie advised that both had departed at 1515.
At 1158 the Billands found Kimo Kai (RT12) at Maili Guard Rails.
At 1242 they found Nihoa , once again foraging in Mailiili Canal.
Karen Turner put in a day with Ua Malie & PO3, and sent today’s pup fix.
Val Bloy checked in with word that Pohaku’s newly weaned son got his bling today. PK3 is now RG28/29.
