Mud avoidance protocol

As I saw Garrett off this morning, I noticed that it was raining, and it looked like it had been all night. I've thought recently that on such days, I might suck it up and climb the residential hilly neighborhoods and then turn back, instead of entering the gulch. But I'm not quite there yet. I just wanted somewhere to go that was completely paved.

It'd been a while since I went for a waterfront loop, so I headed that direction. On the way, I decided I'd start by the park instead of by the water, that way if I needed a pit stop, I could stop at the marina. Now that the park is closed for soil remediation, the only bathroom on the route is at the marina, so it's better to stop there 3/4 of the way through the route instead of starting and ending there.

My commitment is to get a photo of a mosaic and a house when I do that route.

The one on the right should be a cool color, too.

If I owned that house on the right, I'd feel some pretty intense pressure to paint it an interesting color.

Today's awesome walk, 5.14 miles in 1:27, 11,177 steps, 194ft gain

I wish there was even one more way to get from one side of this route to the other. Five miles is a good walk, but it'd be great if there was an option to shorten it a bit. What you see here is the shortest possible route.
