We're trying to take advantage of some of the few fall days that are left before winter starts, by taking more walks on the Canal, whenever Russell feels up to it.
Our first one was exactly one month after I took him home. I'm so proud of how hard he's working on getting well and so relieved that he's making progress. Despite the clouds, this was a fairly warm day...we were comfortable in shorts and jackets.
The love of my life.
Next time we walked at the Canal was in Sandwich, a few days later.
Then one night out of nowhere he goes, 'Wanna go down to the Canal?' I was in my jammies and watching TV but I checked the marine traffic website and saw that a car carrier ship was about to enter our end so we threw on some clothes and went down about 6:30. It's much darker than these pics show because the shutter was open longer, so when I was walking towards the water, the ship blew it's horn as it approached the bridge. It was coming in so quietly that I jumped out of my skin! I had no idea it was THAT close.
Beautiful full moon that night and this was the best pic I was able to get of it.
We also went down to the beach near our house for a short walk.

This was another late afternoon suggestion to head down the Canal for a walk. It was much chillier but we were unprepared for the cold wind on the water. We lasted about 5 minutes before getting back in the car!

We drove over to Mass Maritime so I could get a few more shots....Russell wisely stayed in the car.
A whole bunch of seagulls and cormorants were floating along on the current and diving for fish.
We probably only have a few more halfway decent days to walk before he'll have to join Planet Fitness and use the treadmill!
