Graffiti under GW Parkway bridge over Pimmit Run"Faith! We've gotta have Faith!" says K2, alluding to the George Michael hit song while Dawn Patrol trots along the narrow shoulder of Chesterbrook Road. Earlier she croons an excerpt of "We Belong" (Pat Benatar, by Lowen & Navarro) as we claim the right to be here.
"Hey little Sister, what have you done?" Roadkill in turn quotes from "White Wedding" by Billy Idol. We're alternately lost and found, enjoying an adventure on a soggy-wet morning, following the path by Pimmit Run, dancing over rocks and roots, creeping along the eroded stream bank. Roadkill's memory is foggy from the last time he ventured here almost 7 years ago (see 2012-05-19 - Pimmit Run Trail (Downstream)). Fresh graffiti under the GW Memorial Parkway shines bright.Graffiti under GW Parkway bridge over Pimmit Run
stripy lawn sculpture"Lawn zebra!" K2 points to a stripey garden sculpture. We pass a pair of fierce lions by a driveway, embarrassed to wear bunny ears and guard their Easter baskets. A cut-through takes us to civilization where a woman running with her dog is clueless as to which way we should turn to get back. No matter! "It's a nice day for a white wedding. It's a nice day to start again!"
