Warm Wednesday

Well, hot actually- it's sunny and humid and 86F. But we're due storms tonight and it's supposed to be 10F cooler tomorrow.

Just the short loop today, partly coz of the heat and partly coz Holly is still a touch lame (we just did a leash walk around Rye yesterday for the same reason).
