Damp Thursday

We started off this walk in a thunderstorm, intending to just do the short loop. Then the sun came out briefly so we took the long loop. I say briefly because then the rain started again.

Oh well,  at least it's still warmish, 65F.

No music, listening to the rain on the leaves :)

Finally a bit cooler, 69F, though still quite muggy. It's starting to look fairly autumnal with the leaves beginning to fall, even if it doesn't really feel it yet.

No music today, decided to just enjoy the peaceful sunniness of the woods :)

Wet Wednesday...

... but not nearly as wet as yesterday! It was absolutely lashing down, so I did the shorts and t-shirt and leave the phone in the car thing, so no picture I'm afraid.

Today is similar temperature, 67F, and just light rain. Big tree down on the lower trail (see main blog for pic), I guess the ground is just so saturated the roots just lose their grip.

Late walk today as I had to clean up after the new door was installed, so just the short loop with a tennis ball.
