07:05, 56F, foggy, pink to the east. waning sliver of a crescent moon in the SSE was blocked by the hammock's oaks. had to go into the pasture to see it. 2 egrets flew across. dawn chorus with crows and roosters. last night, could smell smoke from orange lake's fire but not this a.m.
10:50, medium tide at CK, low to mid 70's, wind clocking SE to SW, 5-8 knts. sunny. ducks all over. mended the trawl most of the day. tomorrow must wash the other trawls and mend bait net.
16:20, high tide. wood storks and egrets flying over the back creeks. stopped off at the hay guy's farm for donkey hay. brief discussion on the high price of seed, fuel, and fertilizer.. hay guy heard a whip-poor-will, too. a sign of no more frost. 17:30, 82F at farm, sunny. unloaded 12 bales of hay. pileated woodpecker in donkey woodlot. gave donkeys and sheep a whole bale of hay. they didn't seem too thrilled but didn't walk away either. got 4 eggs.
21:15, 68F. misty. stars and planets dim. late feeding the dogs because I forgot to make their rice earlier.. dogs howling now. probably hear the coyotes.
