The highlight of the day began with a call ate 0939 from Gayle reporting Kaiwi (RK96) for the 11th consecutive day at China Walls. When she later looked at her shots, she noted that molting was definitely underway. Our looks at Kaiwi over the last several days have been somewhat limited but the 11 consecutive days was a hint. The girl is definitely molting. Thank You Gayle !!!
At 1049 Nani (RK60) hauled out, 40 ft left of 1BS. She remained the rest of the day, despite having people checking her out of just off shore. She was very much aware of them. The female actually put her surf ski on the rocks, but did not walk onto the island. A passing fishing boat advised them to get the ski off the island, which they immediately did.
Some of you may have noticed that I haven’t been mentioning Cass’s name lately. Each day I hope she will pop up in my life, but I must tell you that I has been 15 days since her last sighting. Just like her Mom and her sibs, she has disappeared. Only Cass Knows !
At 0625 Team Billand reported Pohaku (RO28) at Nanakuli. At 0925 I got a call from Ocean Safety, reporting and animal at the Makaha Cabanas Condos. The Billands confirmed the Kimo Kai (RT12) ID.
Jon Gelman email report a visit to the Keiki Pond but mama Ua’ Malie, and a brief encounter between Ua’ and weaner Holokai. I got the warm fuzzies all over !!! Karen Turner also sent Holokai shot after Ua’ departed.
Email from our pal Val brought news and shots of the long lost KC (RK28). Last seen at the Marine Base in Kaneohe on 6-16-15. She is happy and well on Kauai, and looks to be the usual mess.
Posse member Vicki Hangai texted that “E40" was at Crappy Cove, Sandy Beach, at 1840. When I arrived I confirmed the Benny (RE74) ID. He remains at dark.
