north florida - wild florida

By: marsHen , 12:02 PM GMT on January 22, 2012

06:30, 54F, foggy but can see stars. no moon, must be a new moon. woke rooster up. crows calling.
09:00, low tide and sunny at CK. slight chilly breeze. after church, walked down to the sandspit to release a blue crab that a friend had been sketching. tide was coming in.
medium high tide on my way out of town. all week long the tides have been neap tides. ducks in the back flats along the causeway. a half dozen lovely stilts poking around tidal fingers creeping into a mud flat.
the swamp, or red, maples, Acer rubrum, have started putting out their scarlet samaras already.
12:00, 72, calm, warmer than CK. chili for lunch and read the paper. ended up sitting out in my chair with the dogs, watching a multitude of birds feeding off of the berries in the big cabbage palm behind the house.. cardinals, robins, mourning doves, blue jays, and unidentified woodpecker and warblers..they were all flying in and out of the palmetto, into the pines and the pecan and back again. skies overcast. took a brief nap.
19:25, 62F, ground fog. stars bright above the fog.
