it was a pleasure to have Ernie Baltz with us; he 
had walked from Lynde C.A. down to the waterfront, across the willow
barrier beach to our platform to join us, then continue all the way up
Hall's Rd. to the C.A. parking lot

the ongoing black clouds of billions of midges hovering
beyond the trees on the east side of the marshland
