I love the city, especially in the early morning. People are quiet and move slowly along the streets. You can hear the birds awake and the smell of the diesel fumes mixes with the chilly air.
I worked a half-day today and hurried home to pack for our trip to Ohio. My daughter spent some time with her very good friend near Cleveland and we need to travel that way to pick her up. It was a blustery drive. Thankfully, the wind was to our back most of the way and we benefited from the assistance.
We found a hotel south of Toledo and hope to see some birds tomorrow as we visit a national nature preserve near the lake.
