2021-01-09 - Moravian Stars

~8.1 mi @ ~20 min/mi

"Maybe we should run now!?" says Roadkill, as speedy cars loom on Connecticut Avenue. Saturday sunrise Square Peg and he start by returning books at the Chevy Chase Public Library. Mud is frozen in ruts on the cut-through by Coquelin Run, a tributary of Rock Creek. Mansions grace hilly Farmington Drive. Some are garish-rectangular gray-and-white blockhouses, but others display well-integrated classic architecture. Cars threaten walkers on the narrow shoulder of East-West Highway where sidewalks are lacking. We meet Coney Counter, who discusses the book Factfulness by Hans Rosling, points out vast numbers of Adirondacks (brightly-painted wooden lawn chairs) arrayed in front yard pairs, and outlines the history of Moravian Stars. Danger Man and Half Full join at mile ~5 and continue on for more mileage. The GPS trackfile omits the first half of the walkabout.
