06:30, 66F, foggy. warm. yellow dogs at back door. guard dog came running from the sheep pasture to the yard gate. she's a good dog. lil pup always happy to go out and see her big buddies. coffee making. oatmeal.
10:00, low tide rising at CK. 64F, NE wind, 12-15. a light chop. ducks by #4 bridge. herons. washed and mended one bait seine. continued mending the big seine. almost done.
lunch at a downtown restaurant and the oysters were pitifully small. there's just no oysters around. the drought did in many oyster beds in the area. as well as clam farming, perhaps we need to do some oyster farming as well. but oysters are more difficult to farm, or so I've heard.. clams like, and need, a much higher salinity than oysters. oysters like a low salinity which is why so many rivers have oyster bars at their mouths.
15:30, high tide at #4 bridge with more ducks! (saw a grebe during lunch.) 68F, NE wind 11 knts. herons in the flooded marsh.
16:00, 70F at the farm. gray and overcast all day. never rained but looked like it was going to. not much chance of seeing the new crescent moon tonight.
19:30, 65F, overcast. no stars or moon - just clouds..
