3/31/2016 DB's Dailies: Nani,Kainoa,RG32&U/M@Rabbit Island, Kaiwi@Kokee Flats, Kekoa@Reef Runway, RIP,Ka'ena&Luana@Ka'ena Pt, Right Spot@Sunset Bch, BG@Turtle Bay, RK36@Maili Pt, R5AY@Uleawa Bch Park

At 0700 I found what would prove to be Nani (RK60), 80 ft right of 3BS on Rabbit Island. Her left side N50 bleach made it a no brainer. She would move down mid morning and remain all day.

 Also at 0700 I found what turned out to be Kainoa (RN04) on the rocks at Seal Rock Inlet. He too would remain all day.

 At 0920 RG32 came galumphing out of the vegetation behind Seal Rock Inlet. He would down and behind the rocks and was not visible for the remainder of the day.

 At 1036 Gayle called to advise that she was with Kaiwi (RK96) at the Kokee Flats, Portlock.

 At 1146 what remained an juvenile, U/M, hauled out to join Nani, right of 3BS. I got lots of good looks at all aspects of this animal, but there was simply nothing to give me any clues, except 2 red tags.

 At 0943 Team Billand found Kekoa (RK72) at the Reef Runway. It was an especially great find since he had not been seen since the day before the Kimo Kai incident.

 At 0946 Tammy & Dave checked in from the End of the World. They reported RIP (RR70) on the Back Beach, & Ka’ena (RO40) & Luana (RN58) at the Main Beach. Luana was super high up, beyond the big rock.

 At 1004 Tour Driver posse member Raul called with the report of an animal at Sunset Beach. I contacted Dana, and Jeanie Martinson responded , confirming the Right Spot (R016) ID, but right side NB.

 Also during that Dana text she advised that BG (R303) was at Turtle Bay.

 At 1211 the Billands found an U/U forager off shore of CIP. There was no ID.

 At 1231 Aliza called the Billands with the report of an animal near the Whale carcass, Nanakuli. The animal was gone when they arrived.

 At 1344 the Billand found RK36 at Maili Point.

 A call from Team Billand at 1755 would have knocked my socks off, if I owned socks. They reported Honey Girl, R5AY, at Uleawa Beach Park on the west side, for the first time EVER !!!!! Amazing !!!!! ID was by the 5AZ tag. Dana had called them after receiving a call about harassment of an animal. HPD was on the scene when the Billands arrived.

 An 1833 text from Dana advised of a haul out of an Unknown animal at Haleiwa. It was to dark for an ID.

K36 was at Maili Pt.

A U/U was at Campbells...not enough time for an id.

Honey Girl in Maili, UNREAL. A REAL SHOCKER and a great Honor meeting her on Westside.

She looked very tired, alert as some jerk was poking her with a fishing pole.

We stayed till sun set and was dark...

I called Deb and Melina to come and meet her. IT WAS A GREAT SURPRISE, CHICKEN SKIN.

I said a prayer for her and her loss. AMEN.

I am still in shock over the arrival of Honey Girl showing up in Pohaku's spot yesterday on the west side, of all.places! I immediately walked over to the beach to witness this. I hope she is okay. We left her after dark. Glad Barbara let me know she was there.
