Reflections and sightings from [almost] daily jogging at dawn

Sunrise 5:25 am: High and low park happenings

Still solo, the female Dawn Jogger headed into Central Park around 7:30 this morning, hoping to beat what is supposed to be a hot and humid day. The people and dog elements of the park were just gathering, it being a Saturday. But the creatures who live in the park 24/7 were busy going about their morning. The turtles were particularly active; the first one was spotted not surprisingly at Turtle Pond (pictured). A fellow jogger was concerned that maybe there was something wrong with it as it was a distance from the water. But a second turtle was spotted on grass near the Lake, and it was clearly a she as she was busy laying eggs. On a higher note, on the Mall, which is undergoing a renovation and closed in many places, rigging had been set up and trapeze lessons were being offered. New York is really a wonderful place.
