05:50, 32f, overcast. roosters crowing. turned off dripping spigots. hay to all. fed chickens. made lunch. oatmeal.
09:00, 36F, mid tide falling on the suwannee river. low catches today. two net sets that pulled in nothing at all. water temps, mid to upper 40's depending on the location. sampled the back creeks, then went off shore for a quick trawl since the wind laid down for a bit. it was cold all day. lots of flocks of ducks out on the reefs. otherwise, brown and white pelicans and oodles of cormorants. 1 osprey perched on a nest. starkly beautiful out there - striations of wind driven foam offshore. inshore, vast golden spartina meadows. not for the faint-hearted the winter sea/landscapes of the suwannee delta but worth every shivering minute.
14:00, 50F at back door. pup glad to see me. guardian waiting for the truck by the corral. good dogs! all quiet in the sheep barn.
21:20, 49F, breezy from the NE. overcast. waxing gibbous moon faint in the western sky. no stars. fed dogs. balmy out. chilly inside. good night dear moon.
