08:50, 64F. sun's coming up golden. blue skies. roosters crowing. pup out. dixie barking under house. hope it's not a snake. guardian at back door. pear tree leafing out. squirrels eating buds. dammit. lamb bottles heating up.
11:00, low tide at CK. NE wind, 15 knts. 75F, sunny. white pelicans off to the east in rafts on sand and oyster bars.
fed cat. bagged bait seine and stowed it. refinishing measuring boards for the larger fish we catch - sanding, varnishing. the measuring boards with their inset meter sticks take a beating on the boat. aside from the salt, sand, sun and fish slime, they are stepped on, shoved around, and disrespected. I periodically varnish them to give them some protection and to keep the meter sticks readable.
16:20, high tide at #4 bridge. some ducks still around in small flocks. 2 racoons scampering across causeway south of lab. heading back to the farm with some bar-b-qued ribs. will share with happy dogs.
17:30, 82F, sunny. guardian meets me at the gate. tail wagging dogs follow me from truck to house. we chow down. got 3 eggs.
21:30, 73F, clouds moving in from west. big full moon coming up in the ESE. just lovely! a few of the brighter stars showing here and there. fireflies ...
