Cloudy, chilly, light east winds. I checked the beach, walked through the dunes, scanned the lake from the fishing pier, checked the Magic Hedge and peripheral plantings, and checked the south side of the harbor. Lots of activity on Lake Michigan - Red-breasted Mergansers, Double-crested Cormorants, Caspian Terns, and gulls.
