8/14/2016 DB's Dailies: RG32&Aukai@Rabbit Island, Kawena@AD, Kolohe@Lanai Lookout, RL42@Makua Cliffs, RW02@20Min, Pohaku&Ka'ena@Yoke's, Rocky@White Plains

Marilyn found Kawena (RH76) in her tide pool on her 7-10 shift. Kawena’s left eye which appeared “squinty” in last night’s shots, appeared wide open and totally normal. Marilyn went down for the evening session, and at 1740 reported that Kawena was swimming west of the AD Wall for the first observed time. It had to happen sooner or later. The girl is broadening her horizons. The 1820 Marilyn call advised that Kawena was back in the zone, Whew !!!

 At 0805 I found Aukai (RL12) just starting down from the Morning Glory behind Seal Rock Inlet. 

She would be joined at 0927 by RG32. Both would enter the water, with RG32 in the lead, at 1006. RG32 hauled out alone to Seal Rock Inlet at 1115. I did not see Aukai again today.

 At 0943 Team Billand reported RL42, once again at Makua Cliffs.

 At 1016 Barbara reported RW04 (RW02) at the 20 minute spot on the Waianae side KP trail. She continued on the Ka’ena Point, and found nobody at the point.

 At 1134 Team Billand reported Pohaku (RO28)& Ka’ena (RO40) together at Yokes. The Billands advised that both were in the water at 1746, with Ka’ena in hot pursuit.

 At 1444 the Billands got a call from White Plains about an animal there. When they arrived at 1547 they found Rocky (RH58) on the Ewa Beach side of the east end perimeter fence. Lifeguards had cordoned her off.

 Marilyn called at 1622 to advise that she had just found Kolohe (RW22) at Lanai Lookout flats.

Many MANY thanks to Deb for coming out to Yoks with Kaena and Pohaku. Dont know what we would do without YOU miss DEB.

Rob, thanks for putting up with my Kaena Pt Adventures...I just want to find the ARROW SEAL. But, I have never found it..My guess is, either the arrow fell off, or the seal went back to Kauai, or HEAVEN FORBID, DIED. Never saw a photo of what to look for, just on the news of a description of a CROSSBOW ARROW. Well, god keep that seal, who ever it is ALIVE AND WELL.

Shocked when Rob called to say he had Pohaku and a big male. Shocked to hear it was Kaena!!!! Man he is so big...he sure wanted MISS POHAKU. Pohaku dumped DA BENNY, or, Benny said, You can have her...and gently left Pohaku's side.

Three cheers to DEB..for being with Pohaku and Kaean from 12:40 to 6pm.
Three cheers to ROB for finding them and sitting with them from 11:30am.

I was so bummed NO SEALS AT KAENA PT again. JUST PEOPLE!!!!! One guy wanted to know, where is the heart shaped ROCK??? I never heard of that...I better GOOGLE IT. Its probably on LINE SOME everything else.

Kaena Pt used to be a place of solitude, hardly any, no matter what day you go out there...HUMANS ARE IN THE PONDS where the poor seals USUALLY GO. Poor seals, no place for them to just SLEEP anymore. I feel for them.

HI MARIE!!!! Get nice to see you again. Sorry you missed the seals departing.
