Watch out for the goose poop. Otherwise the paved stone path is firm and pleasant to walk on. Make sure to check the red eared sliders on the fallen tree. They jostle for the limited space on the log above water. They love to stretch out their heads and limbs to gather in more of the delicious heat.

You have almost made it round the pond once. You should now see the sad stump of a healthy tree removed for no apparent reason.
That’s it. One completed and many more to go.
