Monday, Monday (i was listening to the Mamas and the Papas discs in the car)
Well, i went to the Cuyahoga to see the birds. The mouth dumps into Lake Erie past an abandoned Coast Guard station, and the banks there are buttressed. The first thing that transverses them is a vertical lift railroad bridge. An armada of several nations of ducks, and some others, filled those waters. Monday afternoon, the sun hit the water blue and the light falling on red feathers made them beautiful. It was such a pleasure in the viewing.
