Cloudy joy

Decided to head back to the waterfront and do the loop I recently did starting there, but in the other direction.



There are so many trees around here, sometimes the only place to get good shots of the sky is from big parking lots.

I posted before about how the Westernmost residential streets overlooking the water have great views because there's about a 50-foot drop right behind them. This is what that looks like from below.

Good advice.

This is the spot where I was completely blinded by the sun the other day. The clouds were glorious today, plus I might have been there a bit earlier.

There's parking across from the main part of Legion Memorial Park, and a little grassy overlook area with benches and telescopes. I think it's nicer than the rest of the park.

When I walk in this area, I'll take pictures of a few of the houses each time.

I love a good weeping willow. They were my mom's favorite tree.

The last time I walked by here going the other direction, I didn't notice this bush is trimmed into a dog shape. At least, I think it's a dog.

There are a lot of mosaics in the sidewalk at the park, so I'll snap a pic of one each time I'm there. This is the second one, I got the eagle last time. This one's my favorite, though.

I spotted this early in the walk and drove the long way home to pick it up. Upon closer inspection, it wasn't in very good shape, so I left it. I just wanted the frame.

Today's route. Quite lovely, that area, but I do get tired of all the people. You can only say "Morning!" so many times in a walk.

Today's awesome walk, 5.38 miles in 1:44, 11.578 steps, 209ft gain
