Sunny, some thin cirrostratus; good breeze from northwest. Few people on the beaches, more on the paths. Mallards, geese, swallows, gulls. Cottonwood cotton accumulating like snow on the grass. Shelf of chartreuse algae on millefoil reaches out up to thirty feet along the western shore, holding plastic detritus and attracting large dragonflies. Clear intervals in the shallows are thickly populated with panfish idling in the sunlight, and the occasional giant carp. One near-collision between a carp and a mallard, ruffling feathers and fins.
