11/24/2015 DB's Dailies: Kolohe@Rabbit Island, DB, Benny@White Plains, Team Billand

It was another one a’ them ! Rain...zero visibility and just generally crrrrappy conditions. I could vaguely see a lump in the Morning Glory on Rabbit Island at 0727, and on my 3rd trip back to Makai Pier at 1120, I could see that the lump had a big ol’ beautiful natural bleach on his right side. It was Kolohe (RW22). That was the only cast member seen by either myself or Gayle here in the SE quadrant today. Some of the usual spots were inaccessible due to rain and mud.

Team Billand called at 0655 with the report of Benny (RE74) cruising back and forth fronting White Plains, but not hauling out. At 0719 he headed straight out and they lost him. Other spots came up zero. Benny’s day was not over however. At 1435 lifeguards reported an animal at White Plains. When the Billands arrived at 1500 they found Benny between T#2 and the showers.
 Here comes Benny.....

 A-M-A-Z-I-N-G .... Great shot Barb..... lighting is spectacular

Its a double Rainbow, not lightning .... he he ha ha.

Just hoping people can help us out if Benny is going to stay for his molting session...especially on Thanksgiving Day, PLEASE.

So far, he been coming out to area for four days.

Everyone is shocked that there is just ONE seal now, compared to the many who once came a shore. It feels like, we might see one come around the Kalaeloa area, BOBBING, up and down, looking. Nope...
