07:40, 63F, calm. sun's up and so are we.. (really slept late. have to stop this!) roosters in tune, though ... oatmeal for breakfast. wish it was fried fish.
10:40, medium tide at CK coming in. low 70's, SE wind, 10-14 knts. worked on the trawl that I washed yesterday. kept finding rips. washed the other bait seine. ospreys have reclaimed their nest. lots of mockingbirds around. hot when the sun moved to the back of the building where I mend the nets.
town full of sightseers. there was even a line in the local market! and they were not on island time ...
16:20, very high tide (going out) with a lot of ducks. red-tailed hawk sitting on a post on the way home. a flock of goats busted through their fence at a local ranch and were mowing the shoulder of the road.. cute, actually.
16:50, 105F in the sun by the back door! 86F within the hour. mowed the nettles on the east side of the house and in the back. ran over some hidden baling twine.. drat. thunder in the NE with dark clouds. got 1 egg. left-overs for supper. noticed that the larger elderberry bushes in the back yard have put out some blooms! early!
19:05, 76F, totally cloudy with distant thunder. nice cool breeze from the east. put sheep hay in the barn. dark clouds spitting at me.
20:10, 75F, started drizzling right when I went to fill the sheep water. finally!
