We get them more or less yearly, in the Spring, typically for only one day. Amateur ornithological theory is that they are juveniles looking for a flock. They do look kind of clueless, so this theory may have merit.

Sunday afternoon, in the heat of the day, I took my somewhat under-utilized 1982 Specialized Sequoia born-again go-fast up the Mystic Valley Parkway to have a look at the Mystic Lakes scene in this first visitation of Summer heat.


Nothing under-utilized about the Mystic Lakes that day. Lots of creative parking, and lots of towing to keep the lots clear enough to permit folks to leave in the unlikely event that they wanted to leave. The tow trucks lined up. Cops directed traffic.


People thronged the Lakes, moving in and out of the water, happy to have some relief from the heat. Epidemiological precautions were conspicuous by their absence.




Thunderheads were already forming, but nothing was delivered.


Some people actually swam.


Others worked on their circus skills.


A cheerful good order prevailed. This way to Summer.
