I have read through Big Creek one more time yesterday and today. I found and corrected a lot of things, many of them, as I suspected, I had introduced while changing the tense. I had a hand-written list of things I wanted to double check. Every season we spent in Big Creek, I would explain some things anew: bear jam, iron ranger, bear-proof locker, dispatch, and more. I went through making sure I only described those kinds of things once. I added a description of the bat research. I searched for two spaces at the end of sentences. (It is hard to break old habits!) Surprisingly, I had about a hundred double spaces within sentences. I guess I did that when I would rewrite a sentence to make it better. Yes, I feel like I am making some progress.
The weather here in Marathon has been in the mid 80s F since we got back at the beginning of November. Yesterday and cold front moved through and now it is in the mid 70s F. The wind has been blowing and rocking the motorhome a bit. It feels great when we take our walking breaks.
We walk to the waterfront for the walking breaks and yesterday saw a shower out on the horizon. We had a small chance of rain and it fell down like a waterfall for a few minutes. That was after I had watered my garden.
Today was a day for the record books, so I must record the event here. I harvested the first tomato of the season! It was a cherry tomato. I plucked two basil leaves to go with it. I carefully cut the little tomato in half and added a mozzarella pearl to each plate and then put a few drops of olive oil on top. Andy got a big laugh out of my plating, but we both enjoyed our ceremonial one-bite of tomato.
