8/19/2016 DB's Dailies: Kawena@AD, Kekoa,Cass&Kala@RI, Pohaku@Paradise Cove, Benny@Makua Cliffs, Kolohe@Lanai Lookout, RL42@20Min, Nihoa&W02@30Min

A Marilyn text at 0749 advised that she had Kawena (RH36) near her birth spot at AD. Through the morning Kawena would begin exploring to the east. Marilyn was joined by Michelle & Diane T., and together they would spend the morning watching Kawena entering the western most finger of the AD estuaries, and explore the entire area, finding things to munch on whether eatable or not. Near midday Kawena would exit the estuary and haul out to the water front rocks just east of her birth spot, for a snooze.

 Though I arrived at Makai Pier at 0830, it would be 1213 before I finally found a very green Kekoa (RK72) hauling out to the left end rock flats.

 At 1224 what would prove to be Kala (RH76) & Cass (RG06) haul out to Rocky Right Beach.

 Diver posse member Paul Hasley called at 1257 reporting Kolohe (RW22) in the water fronting Lanai Lookout on his dive. His photos confirm the Kolohe ID. I guess Kaiwi must have given him the slip after yesterday’s Elk’s Club romance.

 Team Billand called at 0706 with the report of Pohaku (RO28) at Paradise Cove. Brenda (NOAA) responded and vaccinated Pohaku.

 At 1228 Team Billand reported Benny (RE74) at Makua Cliffs.

 At 1307 Barbara called with the report of RL42 at the 20Min mark on the Waianae side KP trail

 At 1310 she found Nihoa (R912) at the 30Min mark.

 At 1329 she reported RW02 just a tad beyond Nihoa’s location.

Kala and Cass
 Kolohe - what a wonderful treat seeing these underwater photos - THANKS Paul
