Excursion, and news

Took momma and dad out to Deception Pass today - the spectacular bridge that connects the mainland of Washington state with Whidbey Island. It's about the third time I've been there, but there are sundry trails all over the headlands which I'd never really been on before, so we did that - they didn't seem to be THAT much of it, at first (0.2 miles THAT way (and then back) and then a 0.8 mile return trip in another direction, and then...) but it all added up and I think I wound up walking a brace of miles without quite having dressed for it (if anyone tells you walking a trail in a pair of those Dansko closed-heel clogs, which are otherwise QUITE comfortable, is a good idea, you may tell them you know different...) However, it was a good day for it - and today was the first day that I actually wore a short-sleeved t-shrit out. It was, in fact, quite perfect.

And yes, there IS news - but I just got it by phone in a pre-emtpive kind of way, so I'll have to wait until it's officially out before I spill. So watch this space, as it were...
