Breeze from the west; blue sky, thickening cumulus clouds, a passing shower, dark clouds filling the horizon to the west and south; distant patches of rainfall. Swimmers and boats leave the lake. The usual mallards, swallows, geese and ducklings in the usual places; a lone loon in the southern half of the lake. The island at the southeast inlet is now filled with with tall flowers: purple loose strife. and asters or thistles, also purple.
