I saw this creature at the Museum of Fine Arts while preparing my notes for a tour about early American furniture designs.

|The Charles River floods in South Natick|
|The Pleasant Street Bridge|
The arches are covered halfway by the river.
|The Charles River: the island below the dam|
The island is completely submerged.
|The South Natick Dam|
The squiggly thing is a log which I drew in more detail below.
|Canada Geese on a large log above the dam|
This log was dislodged during the latest storms and is moving very slowly to the top edge of the dam. The geese don't seem to mind.
|The river is still very full and flooded.|
|Looking up toward the dam|
I drew this yesterday. For many days this stone retaining wall has been underwater. Its surface is now scoured and whitewashed with silt.
|The ocean at Reid State Park in Bath, Maine|
After driving our daughter to Camp Arcadia, we spent a few days with in-laws in southern Maine. Summer has officially started.
