~5.2 miles @ ~13.8 min/mi

"Coyote Taco was just across the street!" The Dawn Patrol discovers a new cut-through, from Pine Hill Rd to Dolley Madison Blvd, a pedestrian pathway that we've passed by hundreds of times on the other side without noticing. A lovely front-yard garden beckons, graced with pink flamingo statues and flowing water. Echinacea and hydrangeas bloom in profusion. It's already a season of mists and mellow fruitfulness. Gentle rain patters down.

"Dynamite it?" - "Make it into a flower planter?" - "Carve a statue of a mermaid?" - "Maybe a basketball player?" Kerry seeks ideas for what to do with the remnants of a soon-to-be-removed dead tree in front of her house. Kristin comments on her talkative daughter, whose brother calls her "Motor-mouth!". Cait tiptoes on slippery stones, then jumps off to just run on the mud. An upcoming visit to Dublin for a U2 concert brings to mind the Broome Bridge there, where mathematician Hamilton invented a new number system, the Quaternions. (Maybe that could be a band name?)
