Fresh pond

this is the frog pond at Boston Common (see previous post). of course i did not understand at all why everyone was in the water while all around the water there were signs clearly saying "pond closed". when i took this pic i had not yet witnessed that disobedient citizens wading through some water can get arrested for that, otherwise i would have been even more worried about all those people with small children....
i guess the water was 30 cm deep, and probably around 37 degrees; thus the perfect E. coli incubator. yegh!! not such a fresh pond, i think. and all those children lying in that dirty water.... yegh! but they obviously all were very much enjoying themselves.. it was really cute to see...

When the pond is closed the signs actually go in the water. So the pond was open for masses to bath in ;)
