Wabbit Wednesday with my favorite bunny. Miss Dusty was happy I turned off the flash this morning. I turned on all the lights in the room, and that was enough to get good pics without annoying the bunny with the flash! Anything for the Wabbit.

Back to Lake Crabtree to see if there would be a nice sunset. Things looked promising - we had clouds and it was clearing to the West. But it just didn't really work out. Still not a bad way to end the day.

Mom liked the first gobblet I made, so I made one for her! I gave it to her in July, but not before photographing it. It is time to share the photo as the photo of the day!

Dusty builds a nest with beach towels in this little basket. She has spent a lot of time trying to get things just right... hard to get a picture of this as she is moving fast to arrange the towels just right. Then she needs to rest, and maybe have some hay.

Post workout selfie in the SAS Gym parking lot. Ran outside this morning. Low 70s with dew point the same... lots of mist and fog to start out. Makes for a moist morning run.

Cary's oldest movie theater. Now owned and run by the Town of Cary, this theater hosts a variety of events. Good to have it back as a theater in the heart of the new downtown.
