|Mile 5 photo location.|
|Zoom of Cheryl|
On to the recon! We followed the marathon route backwards and found the places we were planning on setting up for Photo Ops. Having done all of this before helps... and the Recon part of the day took less time than expected.

|I await my next assignment...|
Now...what to do with the remainder of the day????
|Exploring the grounds|
|The Fishing game room|
After a few gift shop visits to remind us of how NOT to spend our time or money, we settled on walking around the lodge and scoping out the numerous trails and sites they brag about in their brochure. Along the way we discovered ...Mergansers! Cheryl thought there was a Loon outside our window last night...and there may have been...however, when investigating the sounds by the lake...we discovered a female merganser and her chicks swimming about. We also discovered that our new camera truly shines at wildlife photography. The zoom was awesome!

|Small pretty falls.|
|Small pretty flowers.|
|Yeah, kinda like that....|
Cheryl, on the other hand, seems to be able to turn herself off with the flick of the lights. Maybe the pre-race jitters will not plague her tomorrow. We shall see. The weather is a mixed bag of promises, and vagaries that keep the runners always guessing. I will truly know the weather forecast tomorrow...after the race.
