went sampling north of the river. upper 70's, SE wind, 10-12 knts.. water temps = 25C, 77F. a few pairs of ducks left in the back creeks. passed one manatee. a breezy lovely day. caught a lot of anchovies in the bait seine. some stingrays, baitfish, lady fish, one sheepshead, and a huge black drum in the 600 ft. seine. tide was very high!! the sawgrass is already putting up bloom spikes.. last year I thought it was early in june.
this is unprecedented for up here, I'm thinking..

07:20, 69F at the farm. a large black racer at the sheep barn. flies are bad.
11:00, high tide at CK. upper 70's with a light variable breeze. helped build some crab traps.
my resume would fill a book, but does not include any computer savy.. still no internet at the farm.

Came down to Fla. a few weeks back, sight-seeing for pythons, saw four good size (8'+) burmese, and a fair sized reticulated (possible 12 footer) awesome in the wild......heard there were anacondas down there also, but to no avail.
