The upshot of all of this for me was that I had my Wednesday free until late afternoon. Ziva had not expected me to be able to traipse around with her, so when I began my stretches and breakfast prep, she was napping in her bed.
The Greenway had been closed the day before for major sewer line work, and I wasn't sure what the situation would be there, so when we did get out for our walk, we began with the neighborhood park.
On a street heading for the Greenway entrance at its current end point, I stopped for an iPhone shot of a winter flower frosted by the precipitation. I would return later to shoot it with fancier equipment.
When we got to the entrance, the trail was indeed closed.
"Maybe I can just move this sign out of the way, and we can go in!"
It's supposed to be open from Dawn to Dusk!
Sorry kiddo, it's really closed. We'll have to go somewhere else today.
But of course you'll be patient enough to let me try a ridiculous photo of this leaf, just for fun, right?
