When I got back to Makai Pier at 0804 Kimo Kai was just moving down, and I noted that Kainoa was gone from 3BS. At 0840 Kainoa hauled out to join Kimo Kai, and at 0842 both entered the water.
At 1000 a Sea Engineering employee who had been conducting experiments on the pier came up to advise me that 2 seals had just swum under the pier, and were headed in an easterly direction . With binoculars from the 2nd floor I could see two animals playing near shore between the pier and Kaupo Beach Park. I could see that one was small and the other larger. I have zero proof, but I gotta’ cat that says it was Kimo Kai & Kainoa, but ???????
At 0710 Team Billand called to advise that they had gotten a call about an animal at Paradise Cove, however there was nobody there.
At 0736 Lesley called to advise that she had seen an animal at the water line at the location were RW02 has been molting, apparently readying to enter the water. By the time to got to the location the animal had departed. Chances are excellent that it was RW02.
At 0950 Team Billand called from the Reef Runway where they were doing their regular check. They were just a galumph or two behind and animal that was just departing as they arrived. No ID was possible.
After email from The Donna, brought a forward of two animals on the Mokes today. I was unable to ID seal#1. It appears youngish with a new coat. Seal#2 was a piece of cake due to her hard life with the scars to prove it. It was most definitely KC (RK28). Her last sighting was on 10-1-15, 70% molted on Kauai. Thank you Kailua Sailboards, & Kayaks
At 1508 Team Billand called advising that they were with Pohaku (RO28) at Secret Beach. Mahalos to Warren&Paula ! Pohaku departed at 1820.
