Des Moines. WA, Morning Walks

with Jackie and Elston Hill

September 2020 to January 2021
In mid-September 2020, Jackie and I moved into Wesley, Des Moines. With the pandemic keeping us grounded, we found the safest way to do
our exercise was to do a walk every morning at the Marina and Creek. We usually walk at 7 a.m. and usually walk three miles. Occasionally we
ventured to downtown, Seattle very early Sunday mornings and holidays when we had the downtown to ourselves. These pictures are a record
of those morning walks.
