There's another guy I run into all the time when I go to the tank farm. He walks the opposite direction, about half as fast as me, so we see each other over and over. I started to wonder if he's there every day or just one day a week like me, so I decided to go down there today instead of waiting until Thursday. It'd also been a while, so it was nice to go there. One of the first things I saw was this public notice for a meeting about the new ferry terminal. Looks like the tank farm's days are numbered.


The moon was so bright, I could see everything quite well. The photo doesn't really show it, but it was neat.


Before I even completed the first lap, I ran into that dude. My guess is that he's there weekdays. No biggie, but it was worth it to me to figure out if I could have the whole place to myself if I just switched days.

The big crane thing at the beach looked cool today.


This gate was open for the first time that I've seen and it was really tempting to go have a look at that little building, but I didn't want to get in trouble. That's right across from the train station with its guard, and who there are probably several cameras in the area.


Gorgeous morning, but no spectacular sunrise. It was really bright when I pulled back into my neighborhood, though.

Today's awesome walk, 6.04 miles in 1:57, 12,960 steps

Started a new pair of shoes today because rocks were poking through a hole that a sharp rock made in the left shoe of the last pair. I mainly take a photo each time so I can search flickr and see how long each pair lasts. I thought I could get away with these short socks, but the backs of the shoes rubbed up against my Achilles tendons a bit. Ouch.

At lunch time, my friend Kristen joined me for the trip up to Mount Vernon to pick up the giant scissors I had engraved for our friend who's a mayor. But first, we ate. This burger was ridiculously big, but also very tasty, with jalapeño ground into the meat, horseradish slaw, fried jalapeño, and cheese. The fries were tasty as well. And I had a tasty peach sour beer.


We stopped in the co-op and talked to a friend of hers she used to work with and I found these awesome cat mermaid and butterfly stickers for my laptop.


Downtown Mount Vernon is very cute and has a lot of awesome shops. It's pretty busy with cars, but they smartly turned a lot of the side streets into pedestrian plazas recently. Definitely a great place for a meal and some shopping.
