So I enjoyed a nice morning in Brooklyn.
A few minutes before I was going to have to leave for the Adventure by Subway, I thought to check my phone -- and I learned that my afternoon had freed up due to parade/traffic complications.
So it was a fine day for some nice walks around Brooklyn, interspersed with Relihan's translation of Consolation of Philosophy. I headed the long way around the perimeter of Prospect Park to get to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.

The water lily ponds today were graced by a visiting egret.
As tourists crowded around with cameras, the egret promptly took off for the southern pond.
