06:35, 56F, clear and calm. roosters, crows, songbirds belting it out! donkeys griping, dogs howling.. whew! wake up! wake up! hazy smokey.
today is international women's day. find a gathering, you women out there, and join it to show your solidarity. we are gathering for PEACE today at noon on dock street at CK. join us if you can!
10:00, medium tide at CK. wind clocked from the east through the south into the west, 5-7 knts. sunny. warm, low 70's, at the rally for peace out on the fishing dock. had a good turnout. mended the trawl before and after the rally.
while I was mending the trawl, I looked up and a great egret, in breeding plumage, paced sedately by me in the boat yard! he totally ignored me until I went to get my camera, then hid behind a tree, then flew off. the ospreys are settling into their nest again. tide coming in.
16:30, high tide with ducks. bought some oysters for dinner. thought I needed the protein before I get my tooth pulled.
17:10, sunny at the farm. no smoke - looked like they got the fire out. low 70's. had a visit from a botanist. some of my young cabbage palms are dying so she took some tissue samples. did some chores in-between digging up the roots. fried oysters and fresh cherry tomatos for dinner. got too dark to get eggs, hoping no snakes will discover them.
68F at moon rise! stood out in the pasture after dusk and watched that huge, orange moon rise above a cloud bank with red mars above and to the north of it! to the west, just above the oaks, bright venus and jupiter were setting a hand's breadth apart. the skies this evening were awesome.
