On a pan at 0847 I found Buster (RV08) at Rocky Right Beach. He was headed down toward the water line so I presume he was hidden in the high grass at the back of the beach, and I simply missed him on previous pans. He would move down and out of my line of sight at 0932. He would haul out again just briefly at the left end of the beach at 1144. RM38 who had moved down to cool off earlier began a bellowing charge, and Buster reentered the waster. I did not see him again. RM38 would also enter the water ate 1149, and haul out again fronting 1BS at 1206 where he remained the rest of the day.
A Melanie text at 1333 advised that she had a small, green animal doing 5-6 minute dives at Spitting Cave. No ID was possible in the afternoon glare and rough water conditions. Melanie’s shots reflect perfectly just how impossible the task was. This will most definitely remain an U/U.
I didn’t hear from Team Billand until 1327 when they reported their first finds of the day. It was RIP (RR70 & Kekoa (RK72) once again together at Maili Point.
The Billands got a White Plains, lifeguard call at 1629 advising of the arrival of an animal fronting #1707. The Billands confirmed the Benny (RE74) hunkered down at his Naupaka tree at 1708.
