Saturday, April 11, 2009

Sunny, thin cirrostratus; light breeze from southeast. Large loon coasting and diving off the swimming beach. Another sighting, or another loon, further to the west. Large muskie exposed on its side on wet sand. Remaining ruck of ice on shore up to a foot thick in spots. Six pairs of buffleheads swim out in a straight line off the southwest. Two radio-controlled toy sailboats ride the breeze near the yacht-club kiosk. Another loon near the north shore; and yet another, or the same as another, near the west. Many people and dogs on the paths. Planes coming in high, but quietly.
