The UThink server is down this afternoon, so this posting will be delayed . . . .
Field of cumulus clouds; good wind, cresting waves, from the northwest. The southeast beach mostly empty; more people on the northern beach. The usual mallards, geese, and swallows. Many ducks and tiny ducklings in the weeds along the western shore. Small holding pond at northwest full almost to the spillway from last night's rain. First goldenrod beginning to flower; all the other flowers now past their peak. Several long stretches of standing water in the creek bed.
