Notes

Sunny with some cloud cover rolling in...not very windy . No rain in past 24 hours. A nice family with 2 young children were out walking the trails here and were interested in what I was doing so they got involved in helping me and earned their sticker badges :) They discovered a water beetle and we got to watch a young muskrat swimming around the pond as a bonus for us all. Some ducks and songbirds around too. Under the surface of the water appears to be some green egg clusters I think...possibly frogs eggs?
