Thursday was an interesting 60 minute run out the trail. There were a few raindrops but it didn’t matter since I was wearing the kerchief with larger ice cubes. After seeing some old friends I continued on to the more woodsy part of the trail. Just ahead of me was a young deer munching on leaves. She waited until I got there, grabbed a nice mouthful, turned and leisurely walked into the woods. She followed me several yards away in the woods in a parallel line to my path until my turnaround point. There was a bunny and many birds. On the return trip I saw and heard the catbird. Ospreys are attending their nest.
By the river, two sets of Canada goose parents had their goslings with them. One group was quite tall, still fuzzy but with grey fuzz. The other smaller group still had some yellow fuzz. Soon they will start to feather out, tail feathers first. The Golden Rain Trees have produced many very light green seed pods.
The trip helped me to live in the moment. I didn’t take pictures, but mentally wanted to absorb what was happening.
In the afternoon, DC and I did 2 hours of volunteer work.
Today I’ve got to get out there because thundery weather is supposed to arrive around noon. I’ve also got to plant my yellow beans this weekend.
Happy runs, All!
