07:05, 48F, foggy. roosters crowing. pup wants out. a late start..
09:35, 57F, fog fading but smoke persists. one of these days, when enough folks get killed on the highway, the burning of the forests might get restricted. wondering if anyone looks at the forecast when burning permits are issued. crows flying with sticks in their bills. yellow jasmine exploding. pink azalea a mass of blossoms - the fuchia ones are right behind it. my 2 fancy camellias finally blooming. the old time camellias have been and still are blooming since thanksgiving. chores done. lambs slurped down their bottles. got 1 egg.
10:30, low tide rising at CK. several flocks of scaups in the channel. sunny. 56F, east wind, 7 knts. lots of small shorebirds out on the mud flats.
mended and pack away the washed and dried otter trawl. began mending the 600 ft. seine. proofed data. great clam chowder and grilled cheese at pat's on 2nd street.
15:30, high tide at #4 bridge. stopped for shrimp at mr moe's and got his secret recipe for smoked mullet. ducks dabbling in the marsh. egrets.
17:50, 60F, partly cloudy, pallid sunset that morphed into an orange background for the oaks in the donkey woodlot. nice walk with the dogs. the usual chores. ivory full moon rising in the east. whew!
19:00, 55F, full moon rising above the pines. jupiter overhead. fog forming. bonfire eerie in cow field to the south. guard dog barking in lane.
