whips water with gusto
Buffalo and region had wind gusts of 40 to 50 miles per hour
today. I took some pix at the big curve in the river at Strawberry
Island, at the foot of Ontario Street, about five minutes from
river looked more like a confused sea, with steep swells of
two to four feet. The gulls and ducks didn't mind a bit, though.
It was just a little more fun than usual for them, to watch
them bob with the waves. A few bobbed more offshore and did
a lot of underwater swimming. They looked like ducks, but I'm
not so sure. I've seen 'em in Delaware Lake, too. Loons, maybe.
