Breeze from the northwest; thickening cumulus clouds. A half dozen sailboats. Near western shore a small group of mallards approach a floating muskrat with careful hesitation; it decides to leave. Geese mingle with the mallards (including two dark-brown, white-bibbed domestic mallards) and sparrows near the refreshment stand. The plastic brontosaurus--more likely a plesiosaur--is still in place among the weeds along the eastern shore, near a wood duck and six ducklings.
