Sunny; cirrus and cirrostratus. Mild breeze from north. Solitary grebe along south shore; a few coots and mallards to the southwest. Wooden fishing dock now adrift; fisherman in waders relocated to nearby berm. Flotilla of geese in middle of lake; a different group sunning along the sandy north shore. Two domestic mallards still near the band shell. Stands of ripened milkweed along the northeast shore, back-lit by the sun and the reflected sun. A few warblers peeping in trees along west shore. Water low; creek to south virtually dry, paved with leaves.
