6/29/2016 DB's Dailies: Kaiwi&PO4@AD, Kekoa,Aukai&Kala@Rabbit Island, Rocky@White Plains, RIP&RL42@Makua Cliffs

At 0530 we found Kaiwi&PO4(D#14) in their favorite tide pool. They were still there when I departed at 0645.

 I met NOAA personnel at Makai Pier at 0702, and advised them of the Rabbit Island cast, prior to the vaccination mission to RI. The cast would prove to be Aukai (RL12)&Kekoa(RK72) together, left of 1BS, and Kala (RH76) out on the left rock flats. Their intent ,as I understand it, was to vaccinate Kekoa, however Murphy’s Law was alive and well this morning. Kekoa , horny male that he is, had been hassling Aukai, causing her to move toward the water line. She had finally had enough and entered the water, with Kekoa close behind. Unfortunately, that occurred just as the NOAA folk were advancing for the stick. NOAA personnel hung around watching them cavort off shore. They finally aborted the mission at 1000. Murphy’s Law was crueler still. As they were boarding the boat for the trip back at 1012, Kekoa hauled hauled out to join Kala. Since all phones were packed in dry bags for the trip back, Tracy didn’t get my message until they were back. Murphy sux !

 Much Mahalos to Tracy for her shots of the RI cast today.

 Team Billand checked in at 0723 with the report of Rocky (RH59) on the Ewa Beach side of the east end, White Plains perimeter fence. She would depart at 0952.

 I’m going to take a chance and not put one of my sad little birthday cake shots in da’ blog. Today is a Happy 6th to Ua Malie (RT10), but based on the awesome cake that the TB aunties sent for Holokai, I’m figurin’ that Ua might get something a little better than I can do. Hopefully, I figured right. Happy Birthday girl !!

No cake showed up so I found this one on the internet... we can't let Ua Malie go without her cake!
