Well, the weekend weather was a mixed bag, with a couple of cool mornings the ducks and geese have begun their trek southward. For years that has included a brief rest stop in the Mill Pond to relax and refresh. People have been busy making jelly from the vast amount of beach plums, grapes and choke cherries. There seems to be a bumper crop of berries everywhere. They ripened early this year and sadly many have gone by.
