06:30, 73F, clear. sun's up. roosters crowing. walked pup and old russell. dixie decides to come out from under the house. the storm and the electric guys freaked her out. pup and guardian playing in front yard.

11:10, 88F, sunny. mowed and cleared shearing area by falling-down-horse-barn in anticipation of eventual visit by shearer. cleaned dog pen for pup. figured it was cooler there than the house. it's shady with an occasional breeze. needed shower.
12:00, high tide falling at CK. west wind, 10 knts. 83F. herons and egrets in flooded marsh. frigate birds soaring.
fed cat. worked in wet lab.
15:30, low tide at #4 bridge. 85F, west wind, 8 knts. roseate spoonbills and snowy egrets perusing the oysterbars and mud flats.
17:20, 90F at back door. got 3 eggs. too hot to do much other than take a nap.
20:50, 82F. calm. waxing gibbous moon up there. some stars showing. lightning all to the north. checked radar which showed a storm along the georgia border. doubt it will sink down here. lots of spiders out tonight - hunting spiders along the ground and those strange aboreal spiders that only come down from the cabbage palms at night, build a big web, catch bugs, then eat their web and return to the palms to nap (?) all day. an interesting ecology those critters ...
