Scene On The Trail: Nature's Pace Line

There is a quarter mile of my usual running trail that feels like a very miniature nature preserve, right there in the middle of the city.  Scrabbling ducks and elegant swans crowd along the rocky "beach" where pedestrians and kids throw crumbs into the water, and turtles line up on every spare inch of the tree branches which poke out from the bank near the water's surface.

Today was the perfect weather which brings out tens of turtles, so they were fighting over space in the sun and at the head of the line.  Which meant that nature's pace line had a traffic jam.
