Couples walked through Lorimer Park. Cows were out at Fox Chase Farm. The Pennypack Trail was well used but not crowded. The creek smelled like subtle creek smells (if only I could describe this). Earthy and moist? People were fishing.
Along the Delaware, I saw a fox in the Important Bird Area north of the soccer fields. A red tug pushed a barge upstream. It was peaceful here, and several people just sat in their cars with their windows open.
I made this map of my ride from home along the PennyPack and back via Rhawn. I worked in QGIS, Photoshop and Illustrator. Last night I made a similar map, but the colors felt morose. So this morning I selected out individual colors to capture the tree canopy and open spaces before painting in watercolor. There’s a slight relief, and generally I’m happy with the result.
