Mom and the Kids
I watched the ducks, and then I saw a man trying to teach his dog to surf. The dog didn't care for it much, in spite of having a warm blue padded jacket to protect him from the icy water; he kept jumping off and swimming to shore. Dogpaddling. And someone had painstakingly circled various objects on the beach close to the surf line: a particular piece of seaweed, a mussel shell, an isolated footprint. Clues. If I'd only been able to crack the code...
When I came home I made a peach cake with lots of butter.
Almost 4 miles, most of it on the beach, which is easier than the pavement.
