06:00, 53F, extremely foggy. overcast, no moon or stars. roosters up. crows silent. let pup out but dank and chilly out so let her back in. muffin for breakfast.
09:00, swamp maples are bursting out in flame-red samaras, like torches in the swamps and low lands. foggy all the way and into CK.
moon low tide rising at CK. 57F, NE wind, 6 knts. shore birds busy on the mud flats. ducks in the lead. white pelicans on a distant bar. church was good. I was even on time. low tide at sandspit with sailboat on its side and dingy aground. ducks out in deeper water. fog lifting.
12:10, 61F, east wind, 5 knts. medium tide rising at #4 bridge. scaups love that area. pelicans still out on the half-covered bars. folks out fishing on the pier. fed lab cat.
14:30, 73F, east wind, 5 knts. planted a cabbage palm and a hawthorn out in the cactus field. pups came along and stayed on the fringe where the deer bed down. sunny. watered the cypress samplings and as many pines as I could find. it's dry out there.
17:30, 69F, a haze. got 1 egg. pleasant out. elm tree still an attraction for the birds and squirrels. a buzzard flew close to the farm yard, the birds scattered into a cabbage palm and the squirrels flattened themselves against a branch. when the buzzard flew away they all resumed their feeding activities.
19:00, 65F. big orange full moon rising out of the east. wow!
