Swamp walk quarantine day 171.

Got a little bit wet from rain, left at midday and kept it more brief, due to a minor slip and fall yesterday, I am a bit more achy today.

Weather is mild, mid 70s. I am thankful that it feels more like autumn than summer today.

Swamp was a bit moist, but thankfully light on mosquitoes.

Our squash, asparagus and grapes are growing at breakneck speed.

Human count about 7. None were wearing masks except for me, but distance was maintained.

4 osprey, 6 hummingbirds (!), And a nice assortment of songbirds here and there, too. Not sure if I saw an eagle or not, but turkey vultures were plentiful overhead too.

Allison’s birthday week is now passing and a long weekend s ahead. She got some good loot, and tasty cake.

Used the ice cream maker for the first time to do maple caramel , and cake was lemon, a surprisingly good combination.
