Summer Running Streak, Day #68

One easy mile tonight, but quite the eventful day.

Woke up early this morning, made breakfast, and headed up to the Northwest corner of RI to hike Buck Hill Management area. The loop of the management area leads up to the northwest corner along the Connecticut Border, and then heads along the Massachusetts border before heading back down into RI. We wanted to hike this to see the start of the North-South trail, which we are planning to hike next summer over the course of a few days.

Just like the highways, it was easy to tell when we were in RI, and when we were in Mass. In general the trails in li'l Rhody haven't been well kept this year, so the bug spay has been really important.

Anyway it was a fun seven-mile or so hike, and we headed back to the car. When I got home I had some food, took a brief nap, and my wife and I brought baby girl to the Zoo. The RI Breast Feeding Coalition hosted an evening there, hoping to promote breast feeding and remove social stigma around it. I carried baby girl through most of the evening. She especially liked the pronghorn sheep (I think because they were so close, and slightly resembled our dog...) and the Moon Bears (she actually made some vocalizations at us when she saw them!) So it was a fun night, overall.

When we got home we watched the opening of the Olympic Games, mostly because we like the athletes' parade.
