I haven’t been able to run for more than three weeks.
Well, that’s technically a lie. I can run, but three hours later my shin hurts — badly enough to suggest that running is an extremely bad idea.
So I’ve been doing a lot of biking. One of the advantages of the bike is that I can carry a camera with me. It was beautiful this morning.

Once I got to Stern’s wharf there was still a glow to the light

But the high point of the morning was seeing a swan in Mission Creek estuary. Probably an immature Tundra Swan. I saw one in the same spot last year. Never there for long (this one was gone 2 hours later), but always a treat to see.

On the return trip, the rivera looked lovely reflected in the bird sanctuary

It almost makes up for not being able to run.
