At 0746 I found what would turn out to be Sadie (RB12), 40 ft right of 3BS, on RI. I’ve been thinking all along that this was probably Sadie, right on schedule for her post weaning molt. Sure enough, at 1038 I was able to see D#1 of her molt, on the upper chest and throat areas.
At 0758 an U/M galumphed into my life hauling out to the back of the beach at the far left end of the island. He would remain partially visible all day, and cannot confirm an ID, though Kekoa would be at the top of my possibles list. Maybe tomorrow.
At 0903 Cass (RG06)& RG32 hauled out of Seal Rock Inlet together. They would be joined at 1041 by Aukai (RL12). Those 3 would in turn be joined at 1349 by Kala (RH76).
At 1149 Team Billand advised that there was an animal at “Clausmeyer’s”, Makaha. It would turn out to be a skinny Pohaku (RO28). Debbie was on it. Pohaku would depart due to rising tide , at 1308.
In the Yesterday’s News department, Carola sent shots in the wee early hours which did not make the blog yesterday, of Ka’ale (RH32)& RW02 at Mokuleia yesterday. Mahalos to Carola.
Also in the Y/D department, the rumors are saying that Kawena (RH36) had two visits from an U/U yesterday, at AD, one morning and one afternoon. Same animal ??? Hopefully tomorrow’s HMMA entry will have more info.
