06:35, 65F, foggy. both roosters knocking themselves out. songbirds vocal. clearing. the rain was much needed but since it was a light rain over several days, while it greatly helped the vegetation, I doubt that it raised our water table much at all.. overall, I only got 1.2", but the overcast skies were a boon. there wasn't alot of evaporation going on.. muggy now.
4 deer in the donkey woodlot while I was giving out hay. we ignored each other. got 1 egg.
10:20, low tide at CK. partly cloudy. hardly a breeze, the water fairly flat. the usual shorebirds poking through the mud. worked on the trawl. knotting the smaller rips together first. that gives the net more body for when I start on the big rips.
ospreys keeping it down. mockingbird silent. tide coming in. some sun. low 70's. strangely, the bugs aren't very bothersome.
15:40, high tide. ducks bobbing. heading for the cow town to get russell dog food, gasoline, feed and hay. starts clouding up by rocky hammock. a few cows lying down. looks like rain but the guys at the feed store said it looked the same all day with no rain. got no rain. back at the farm I unloaded feed and hay. 4 deer still in donkey woodlot.
18:40, 66F, clearing. got 2 eggs. can see moon. fog forming.
20:00, 63F, waxing horned moon in the high west. jupiter, venus, and orion visible. no wind. foggy.
