Don't need a weather man to know which way the wind blows.
With apologies to Bob Dylan, it's pretty clear which way it was blowing today at Edgewater Park. Here, looking east toward Edgewater Yacht Club you can see how the winds from the west turned the chain-link fence into a giant leaf strainer.
It was gusting up to 35 mph while I was running. Heading west at times I could barely move forward into the wind. Then around the other side of the loop it was like a big hand on my back pushing me ahead. The temperature was close to 40 and the sun was shining most of the time, but the wind made it feel darn chilly.
The waves were crashing on the rocks—really, take my word for it, it was too cold to stay to get the perfect picture—and the gulls seemed to be enjoying themselves.
In the West the sun was just sinking below the trees along the horizon, creating a beautiful pink/purple sky in the North.
The sun went down in a blaze of glory, all too early at 4:59 pm.
