Long travel day. Arrived in Verona around 1, settled in at our Airbnb, out for a stroll around town and some lunch. Then a serious nap. Went out again around 8, walked around a bit and stopped in Piazza Erbe for an aperol spritz. Watched the swallows soaring above the swallow-tail battlements of the 14th century towers and palazzi. Still light when we got home at 9:30.

Around the neighborhood with Rhonda, the so-called Ann loop, which involves going down the road to Ann Drive and around the block. FDFs out in force, attacking relentlessly even walking down the middle of the road.

With Karen and Rhonda while Glen ran. I may run a bit at some point today, but not as far or as fast as Glen goes. All packed up and ready to leave in the morning.

Warm today, quite calm. Out and around the island, in Lake McDonough, where we saw a female common merganser clucking vigorously at us near the shore. Maybe she’s nesting there. Also saw a handsome kingfisher flying across the bow.

O-practice, of a sort. No problems, but I just missed #11, looked a bit and then came in anyway. Thick, wet, warm. Did I say thick? Lots of ferns, particularly in the eastern part. It's rocky there, so the ferns really slow me down.
