At first Brian couldn't place it but knew that he somehow knew what it was—had seen it in films. Then a small brown head popped to the surface of the water near the mound and began swimming off down the short leg of the L leaving a V of ripples behind and he remembered where he'd seen it. Q: Could you paraphrase this red phrase please? q.v. #1. The lake looks like "L" shapes... #2. It was a beaver house. Q: 'q.v.' is the right expression here? Thanks in advance!
