Bike-commute day 92—to work

Monday, 10 October 2011

Today as I came south from Burkhardt and approached the canopied way along the DPL executive golf course, two deer were in the clearing. On seeing me, one deer bounded away from the K-Mart dock area, across the bikeway, and into the overgrowth that borders the houses to the west. The doe, who was grazing on the west side of the bikeway, looked up from her foraging and watched me as I passed. Calm, confident.
