Erected especially for the sea eagle to rest on.
Although he is not a sea eagle.
An alert fervent and loyal blog reader informed last month that:
“The "sea eagle" is more correctly called the Osprey, Pandion haliaetus.”When returned to a location like “Estero del Tomate”, there is a protocol of activities to follow.
First of all, the Fuso Szulc needs to be levelled.
The fruit and vegetables stored.
Tarpaulins put to break the wind.
The Weather Centre installed.
But yesterday very high on the list was to erect a new pole for the friend, the osprey.
A dead tree washed ashore was found but rather far away.
With great effort it was hauled to a place on the beach in front of the Fuso Szulc.
And indeed, this morning early already, the osprey is back and sitting on his pole.
Probably he is too much animal to realize that there is a correlation between the presence of the Fuso Szulc and a comfortable tree for him on the beach.
The best news from “Estero del Tomate” is that the insects are gone.
This must be because temperatures are lower.
This morning it was 21º C (70º F)
And the rather strong northwestern wind now blows during the day.
What a delight it is not to be bothered by insects anymore.
Not to be constantly irritated.
And to be bitten having to feel the itching everywhere.
As life wants always excitement to be present, tropical storm Norbert is on its way.
The 5 day clone prediction of the National Hurricane Centre predicts that on Friday tropical storm shows up right in front of “Estero del Tomate”.
Sunday, October 5
And the National Hurricane Centre says today:
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS ARE NEAR 65 MPH...100 KM/HR...WITH HIGHER
GUSTS. STRENGTHENING IS FORECAST DURING THE NEXT DAY OR TWO AND
NORBERT COULD BECOME A HURRICANE LATER TODAY OR TONIGHT.
Returned to “Estero del Tomate” to spend a few weeks to be able to work in peace and with full concentration when a hurricane is coming.
But this time it will be different.
The hurricane is not going to come here.
With the help of Miguel del Barco, the Jesuit priest who built the church in San Javier, Baja California, Mexico a force of will and determination is send towards Norbert the hurricane.
So that in the next few days it will change its course.
And it will remain possible to stay here.
Daily the predictions of the National Hurricane Centre will be published on this blog so that everybody can see how in a magical way the hurricane Norbert is pushed by virtual willpower to the west.
