06:30, 60F, calm, partly cloudy, waning crescent moon in the SE. fog forming out in the pastures. the dawn bird chorus in full throat with rooster back-up and a descant by a hunting hawk. rain out in the gulf. another lovely morning in no.fl..
09:40, high tide at CK. low 60's all day, partly cloudy. winds shifty, SE, E, SSE, SW, 3-5 knts. ducks along the causeways and bridges. white pelicans circling the mainland, and resting on oyster bars. crab quiche at kona joe's. interesting poetry workshop in early the afternoon.
a brief shower in town. very good presentation at CK library in the evening by the author, sudye cauthen, on storytelling.
ospreys by lab very busy. alot of fish eating while perched in the pine branches. they have no heart and just tear into the fish while it's still wriggling.. 18:20, tide ebbing and dusk coming on when I left the island. big dead wild hog on the side of the road.
19:30, 68F, clear, slight breeze, damp like a shower passed over. did chores by my headlamp accompanied by the guard dog. got 1 egg.
