So I walked yet another stretch of a related bike trail this weekend--this one not along a canal, which is part of why it was so extremely odd that there was a duck ON THE TRAIL. Just standing there, chillin' like a villain, and not inclined to move until I got to within a foot or so. Very surreal.
I am not appreciating the weather at the moment; I have spent five of the last nine nights staying a half-mile from the start of a lovely long stretch of riverside trail which I've walked a handful of times and quite like--and I haven't managed to make it there *once*. The weather has been bad and/or I have been running errands. Very irritating. Depending on how things work out, I may not end up walking on it at all when I am staying so close.... I know we had a dry winter and the rain is good for the farmers and I will appreciate it when the local strawberries come in, but right now I would like it to stop *dripping* for days on end. It's humid enough that walking in even my high-tech raingear is uncomfortable, and cool enough that just Getting Wet isn't a great plan either (and I don't have waterproof headphones, or a good cover for my iPod. It's a lot harder to motivate myself to walk without benefit of audiobook...)
