06:50, 67F, clear, blue skies and sunny! roosters up. newdog and lil pup knocked themselves out chasing each other around the yard. hanging up a wash. another inch of rain in the gauge. a huge limb fell out of the dead 200 yr. old live oak by the sheep barn. took out the fence but I got it patched.. good-bye debby..
10:30, 77F, sunny with a north breeze. 2 pileated woodpeckers flew over the house. fawn in sheep field. got one egg.
11:00, actual medium tide going out at CK. upper 70's, NW wind, 5-10 knts. light chop by the sand spit. sunny. office work and general meeting. tomorrow we are double tripping with 2 boats since we are behind in our sampling schedule due to small craft warnings and debby. one crew will work north of the suwannee, the other will work south. oh boy! possibly the currents will be fierce and the water high if the suwannee behaves like it did after the hurricanes of 2004 when we got 2 ft. of rain in 3 weeks.
16:30, low tide at #4 bridge. woodstork drifting over the marsh. swallow-tail kite perusing the pines at the curve. went to hay guy's and got another 10 bales. his bales are lighter but his prices are cheaper and the hay smells so fresh it's a pleasure to go into the hay barn.. got 2 eggs.
20:30, 75F, foggy. stars out with haze. waxing 0.57 moon! 2 deer in sheep field. 1 deer checking out the wild grapes on the edge of the sheep fold. green, marble-size grapes are already falling. even some pale purple ones. cabbage palms blooming - they smell like honey.
