After the run, Terry, Matt and I went for a walk around Ward Lake. There recently was flooding around the lake, so the smell wasn't the nice cold fresh air of southeast Alaska that I was hoping to smell. Instead it reeked of dead fish.... it was pretty gross. But it was worth it because today was such a gorgeous first day of October here in Ketchikan, and despite my lazy 5K, and smelly fish, I wasn't letting anything bring Oct. 1st down.
The best part of my day was my niece, Avery, coming over for dinner. Mom baked three pans of salmon in three different styles; brown sugared, teriyaki, and lemon/onion. All tasted delicious. Then the rest of the night, I cooed and awed at Avery. I just can't get enough of her.
What a great start to an always awesome month!
