06:55, 66F, very foggy. condensation dripping from roof line. ground wet. both roosters singing along with all the song birds. little rooster spent the night in a elderberry thicket. glad owls didn't get him. left-over spinach pizza for breakfast.
09:20, 69F, mizzling.. lit. rooster on farm house roof. yellow dog barking up side of the house. got 4 eggs.
10:15, flock of turkeys in a pasture on the way into work. low tide at CK. tide coming in. very foggy and mizzling on and off there too.. 60's. slight breeze. no-see-ums decided to wake up and harass the human population. worked on trawl. watched immature eagle buzzing the osprey nest. ospreys not there. could it be for rent?
met with poetry group today. brought diamond-back poem and there were no changes suggested. hard mizzle downtown but lots of tourists around. still foggy. washed off the boat and gear when today's crew returned. water temps, 19C, 66F. too chilly for shorts. had one hard pull in mud, oysters and current where they caught over a thousand silver perch, Bai. chrysoura, and a good number of hard-head catfish, Ari. felis, and Atlantic stingrays, Das. sabina.
16:30, high tide. ducks abound, mostly scaups, but saw one redhead pair. causeway full of amateur photographers with very large cameras.. catching the ducks in the fog. millions of pictures must be taken of CK scenes annually and I wonder where they all end up.
18:05, 69F, overcast and damp at the farm. lit. rooster on roof again with yellow dogs barking. enter - the guardian, who put bruiser on his back and impelled dixie to retreat to the pen. then she sat in the back yard and kept things quiet until I went to feed the sheep. got 2 more eggs.
19:15, 69F, mostly cloudy. waxing half moon directly overhead, sometimes clear and reflecting in the sheep water, sometimes just a light smudge. fog building.
