I might make my trips down to Edgewater Beach a weekly thing for now, and decided this morning would be great for it.
Man, I need new wiper blades. My friend that I work with is in the process of taking ownership of an auto shop, so I figure I can wait a couple of weeks and get them from her. I also really need to get it washed, which I always put off for a very long time. Anyway the smears on the window are mostly only visible in the shadows of the trees and I like the way it looks toward the end. That sunrise was a real treat to walk around in. This is definitely one of the times where I recommend looking over on flickr because I took far too many photos to include here. I also had a fun time playing with Snapchat while I walked.
I really love when there are clouds in front of and behind a mountain.
Here's a good shot of the former dock site where the graffiti was revealed when they tore it down. I saw that heron fly over there looking like a pterodactyl and he stayed there the rest of the time I was down there, almost an hour at least.
I tried putting my phone in my safety harness to get a time lapse of some walking. The results were promising, but not worth using because it was too bright. And I ended up needing my phone soon anyway because the sky took a turn for the dramatic.

I'm not sure if I've ever done four laps before, but I was in the mood for it. The program indicates that I climbed 120 feet, but that's four very slow climbs of 30 feet each and I certainly didn't feel like it was anything but flat.
Back at home, the air plant I've named Monica continues to amaze. I think she might have a baby soon, too.
Steve's having an afternoon freakout now. He usually runs upstairs and around a lot when he gets in a mood and hopefully he's not too put out by the door at the top of the stairs being closed. It's definitely weird having a litter box and food station down here.
