Woke up early today.

Went to the bike store. Bought new mountain bike tires (Bontrager full tread front, Kenda slick center rear) and tubes for the Specialized, which I am attempting to outfit as a XC model suitable for daily riding, which consists of both commuting and trail riding.

Also bought much fresh fruit and vegetables. and SOY. soon to buy Copper River salmon and Rogue Morimoto Hazelnut beer. Tonight we feast.

Admired river. Avoided mud puddles. Soaked up sunshine. Collected nature specimens: fern, horsetail.Observed marauding Himalayan blackberries, kudzu-like around river area.
