6/16/2017 DB's Dailies: Sadie&Aka, Aukai&Kekoa & RG32@ Rabbit Island , Ka'ale&RW02@Maili RL42@Makua Cliffs, RN14@Paradise Cove

When I arrived at Makai Pier at 0655 my thought was if this morning would be the day. Well, the first thing I saw into the scope found 4 animals in a kind of type group on the beach, left of 1BS on Rabbit Island. It would take the beginning to getting the thought. Unfortunately, it appeared that there was no weaner. I firstly say Sadie(RB12) along with Aka (PO1)D#43 together. Just 20 ft to the left from Sadie& pup, were what would turn out to be become Aukai (RL12) and Kekoa (RK72).

Sadie&Aka would move down toward the water line at the east end and do water session. They would do two haul outs and two feeds and snoozes throught the day.

Aukai & Kekoa would also move down to the east end and they two would do returns back the beach. Ultimately each would depart the east end with Aukai hauiing out again to Seal Rock Inlet at 1104, and Kekoa did the same thing at 1130.

An also find early was a smallish animal amongst the Morning Glory below Seal Rock Inlet. It would turn out to be RG32 who moved down and spent the day amongst the water front rocks all day, Seal Rock Inlet.

 At 0901 Team Billand reported Ka’ale (RH32) and RW02 at Maili.

 Posse member Diane T.  called at 1038 to advise that she had spoken with Jim & Michelle Campbell who where at Paradise Cove, and got a a quick shot of RN14's “N14" bleach. The animal would quickly depart back from PC.  HI DIANE !!!!  

 At 1345 The Billands reported RL42 at Makua Cliffs.

Tracy and I were in contact through the day, and this afternoons latest word is that no batter what the immediate weaning this weekend , Tracy will be off island through next Wednesday, so despite what the quick weaning might occur, next Wednesday may well be the next date for tags.
