For those of you who read food blogs, you will often see a “What I Ate Wednesday” post. Same idea here, except it will be what I saw when I ran on Wednesdays. So take a peek at what my orbs observed and then add your own experience!
Wednesday we headed to Olney, MD for a lil family reunion with the Davis clan. We went to see GD’s aunt, uncle and cousins, some of who he has not seen in a decade or more, and many who I have never met. To avoid the Philly, DC and Baltimore traffic, we decided to take the first ferry of the day, which left port at 730a. Early morning run it was! I didn’t mind a bit though as this time of year I habitually get up at first light, and the chorus of birds inviting me to get up and out had me popping out of bed around 5. Here are some of the things I saw in my almost hour long jaunt around Cape May Point and West Cape May between 530a-630a this morning:
Cape May Lighthouse – light is still flashing its beacon on this cloudy, windy morning. After running in it’s constant presence for the last 9 months, this lighthouse has started to symbolize home for me.
Not to runners!
Good morning skimmies! Black skimmers, a state endangered species, enjoying the quiet of a Cape May morning.
This is what I saw when I looked down, as I often do when running 🙂
Is there anything cuter than this car??
The straight shot down Sunset Blvd is going to come in very handy for long intervals and tempos runs during marathon training later this summer!
Milkweed jungle on Seagrove will hopefully be a nursery to monarch eggs and caterpillars very soon (if not already)!
An hour later and the light is off, sea farers safe for another day.
I got back to the house a half hour before we had to leave to find GD languorously waking up. He proceeded to shower and shave at a luxurious pace, while I clucked around the house like a crazed chicken, worried that we’d miss our ferry. As he predicted, we made it with time to spare and I was finally able to exhale!
What did you see on your run Wednesday?
If you are not a runner, what was something you saw while being active on Wednesday?
