Went to Discovery Park yesterday for a hike--and didn't get lost on the bus! Yay! Steve had mentioned this park to me (one of many in the city) and it really is gorgeous. There's a 2.8 mile loop hike around the park that goes through forest, a little rainforesty-area, and a gorgeous meadow near the sound.

Today was a bit more sedate. Tried out a rather progressive church today. Won't say the name, because I really liked the sermon. Unfortunately the music made me cringe.

Phrases that trailed off into nothingness, warbling vocalizations, saccharine piano music over the psalm reading. Oh well. At least it got me out of the house.
