This week’s long run: seagulls and Serial

For the first time ever I ran two 10ks in a week, and my legs kind of hate me right now.

I listened to the last episode of season 3 of Serial and it was heartbreaking, as was this entire season.

Seagulls in the sunrise:

And ducks:

Not sure if you can see them there, but here are some baby Egyptian geese with their parents:

Seagulls perched on boats, which is pretty unusual, as they normally don’t fly this far up river.

A kingfisher perched on a wire:

And finally some Egyptian geese grazing near the path:

This week’s long run: tiny duckling and race starting lines

Set out early as we’re in the midst of a heat wave (yes, it’s November) and I didn’t fancy running in the sun.

So dark outside…

A few km in and I saw two herons resting on the water’s edge.

Then came the Egyptian geese:

And a mallard mom with her ducklings:

I love seeing the sun rise over the river:

And over a grumpy night heron:

More Egyptian geese on the way:

A little egret perched on a boat:

The starting line gate for upcoming Tel Aviv Night Run is already up:

A great 10k, my last one before the Night Run race.

This week’s long run: dark and flighty

Set out while it was still dark outside:

Was rewarded by an awesome sunrise:

And some Egyptian geese:

As well as a pied kingfisher on the hunt:

A white-throated kingfisher was perching on a wire above the boat dock (you can barely see him, I know, but they’re flighty, so I couldn’t get nearer):

I was super surprised to see a ring-necked dove, as they’ve been overrun by common pigeons:

On the way back I saw a gathering of kayaks in the sea, which was a first for me:

A little over 10K on a very interesting run:

#Inktober 17: Swollen

My favourite prompt so far because it gave me an excellent excuse to draw the pufferfish.

Super5 fountain pen with 0.7 calligraphy nib, Rohrer and Klingner Lotte SketchINK on a Field Notes Signature sketchbook with shading done with a Faber Castell PITT Light Indigo brush pen.
