4/26/2015 DB's Dailies: Sadie&PO2,UU@RI, Kea@BH, Kolohe&UU@SC, Kaiwi@CW

On the road at 0615. I was batting zero until what would remain an U/U hauled out to the left end rock flats on Rabbit Island at 0742. A plethora of weather conditions, as well as lack of movement, made it an impossible call .

 There had been no sign of Sadie&PO2(0820) initially, but at 0754 I glimpsed the duo in swimmable depth water, off shore of 1BS. They would haul out at 0820 for a feed and a snooze. They would do a 2nd water session from 1023 to 1124.

 At 0758 Marilyn D., reported what would prove to be Kolohe (RW22)(0826) & an U/U together at Spitting Cave. Melanie would find somebody on her check at 1430. Awaiting her shots.

 At 1240 on routine afternoon recheck I found Kea (RN46)newly arrived to the cove on the Sandy Beach side of the Blowhole Lookout. Witnesses said he had arrived at 1230.

 At 1321 Melanie checked in with the report of Kaiwi (RK96) at China Walls.

 Ken Tingman did The End of the World trek today and found Ka’ena (RO40), RW02 & the lovely Kaikaina (RL54) at Ka’ena Point. Thank you Ken !!

 Last night Tony Querubin mail brought new of Ola (RG03) with something possibly at her mouth. Supporting shots received this morning from Kai East, showed something there. My Sensei advised that she thought it was dried Sea Cucumber goop, and today’s Gina Walker shots would tend to support that. There was nothing visible in her shots. Thanks to Tony...Kai & Gina for the shots.

 The only word from the Billand’s world was a call at 0910 advising that super Lifeguard, Dennis, at White Plains had reported an animal with a transmitter cruising by, in an Ewa Beach direction. There were no further reports.

 Do yourself a favor, If you haven’t already done so, and check out the Pacific Marine National Monument video at:

 Hawaiian Monk Seal Research Program It’s a playful little ditty you are sure to enjoy.
