During the hot spell we kept our morning walks between three and four miles, but this morning we did a comfortable seven and a half miles. After the sun was more fully up in the sky the rabbits, squirrels and gophers made their appearance so the dog got much more exercise than I did. She was still willing to play when we got home.
There was some wild caught Columbia River king salmon for dinner last night and I opened a bottle of the Lowell Marie Pinot Grigio. It performed its assigned task of washing down the salmon and polenta squares that sat alongside.
