north florida - wild florida

By: marsHen , 11:40 AM GMT on March 14, 2012

07:20, 58F, fog on the pasture. a few pink clouds. roosters up - finally figured out both roosters are calling, "it's a love nest.." one tenor, one bass.
songbirds singing. waning half moon over the house.
grits for breakfast.. maybe a sausage, too.
10:40, medium tide at CK. light winds, low 70's, sunny. fed fish (a favor for one of the biologists who's out of town.) and worked on the trawl. ospreys, mockingbird, and cardinals kept me company. it was pleasant sitting there, weaving the net together. watched the tide come in. one of the clammers gave me a bag of clams. "they're big," he said. "that's o.k. with me," I replied. "they got fritters or chowder written all over them," he said.
16:20, high tide at #4 bridge. a few wood storks flying over the high marsh. white pelicans in rafts out on the water. ducks in the tide.
17:20, 78F and sunny at the farm. clams steaming on the stove. might gum a few of them and drink some broth but planning on freezing most. fritters sounds good. rooster crowing. almost time to start the chores..
19:50, 72F, big thunderhead to NE. lightning. clams were very good. pink and gold sunset. put sheep hay in barn. got 2 eggs. 2 deer in donkey woodlot by the west fence. faint thunder. clouding up. hoping for a sprinkle but it looks like it's moving to the NW. cool breeze.
21:10, 68F, drizzle. lightning to NW and W. cloudy but the conjunction of venus and jupiter showed through the clouds with lightning behind. wow!
