Monday, August 24, 2009

A few scraps of thin cirrostratus clouds; blue and sunny sky, good breeze from the south, cresting some waves. A few sailboats and other craft. Paths busy with walkers, some people arriving at the beaches. Wood duck and adolescent ducklings near southern shore; occasional swallows near the band shell; wood duck and younger ducklings near eastern shore. Mostly yellow and gold flowers: a few turtleheads and evening primroses; many green-headed coneflowers; abundant goldenrod. Water level in creek not so high as before; everything green.
