Island life

I looked out the window when I woke up and saw tons of thick fog, and reflexively thought, Spencer Island. It and the Langus Riverfront Park have been where I've spent so many foggy mornings recently, and it's also an ideal destination right now. It opens early, it's safe in the dark, and a lot of the path over there is paved. And the most important thing for me is that it's isolated. I like walking by myself and having the whole place to myself, and it's pretty rare that I see anyone else over there.

It was too dark to see much as I pulled in, but it didn't take long for the light to arrive. And the fog I'd seen when I got up was long gone.


This is a good route, and it's just about the length that I like for a routine walk, but I think I'll modify it a bit so I don't have to walk over the grassiest area, which is just before the 3-mile mark. My feet got a little too wet today, and that leads to blisters.

Today's awesome walk, 4.55 miles in 1:26, 9,793 steps

I was just lamenting the lack of really good sunrises due to all the cloud cover we've had. But then I turned around and saw a pretty decent one.
