Close encounters of the herd kind

I get to leave a little earlier every day because the sun's coming up earlier, which is working out to more time available for walking. I want my walk days to be five or more miles, so I figured today I'd add a beach loop to my current gulch routine. The plan got rearranged a bit when another guy showed up right as I was finishing my stretches; I really didn't want to follow him up the hill. Awkward. But no problem, I just did the beach loop first instead of last. It was pretty cloudy out and I didn't think there'd be much to take any pictures of. Turns out I was pleasantly surprised.

This mural is new since the last time I was there. One of the things I really miss about Seattle is great street art. There really isn't much up here. Seeing this today was a treat.


And then I got within ten feet of a deer!



Her back leg's a little wobbly, I hope she's not hurt. I also saw the biggest snail I've seen in a while.


Today's awesome walk, 5.99 miles in 2:03, 12,873 steps, 568ft gain

Today for dinner I made lemon garlic pork tenderloin, salt roasted smashed potatoes, and a roasted vegetable side from the frozen section. This was my first time roasting anything in a box of salt, and I really liked how they came out.
