Placing overall – 31, last

As with last year, I wanted to do a walk in the spirit of an arctic night.
Yup. I did a 5K by moonlight.
No GPS because light. No flashlight. Although, my eyes never got completely dark adapted because I kept taking pictures. SA: Why does it take so long for our vision to adjust to a darkened theater after we come in from bright sunlight?, 2007.
Time includes a trip back to the house. There are some things ya just don’t want to do in a stall.
Horses. What is the crazy lady doing now? Oh well. Later. Nap time. Both lying down at the same time. So much for setting guard.
The Walk That Almost Wasn’t
Too cold. Too dark. Waaaaay past my bedtime. No. Woke up in the middle of the night. Still no. Gonna stay in bed, thank you very much. Unfortunately/fortunately digestive system did not agree. Had get up to visit the smallest room. Hmm. Moon still up. Doesn’t look that bad. I’ll start and see how far it get. Glad I did.
