My friend PJ is an avid runner. During Dewey weekend he ran in the short 5k run held to support the fight against cancer. This was not enough, though.
He had brought his two girls, Kali and Zuni, with him this year as he had the year previous. He always takes time to run with his girls on the beach. But when he goes for his runs alone we watch his girls for him. They are not pleased to be left behind, but they are no trouble. They settle in and patiently wait for him to return.
On Sunday it drizzled off-and-on for most of the morning, which put a little damper on things after the two bright, sunny days we had had on Friday and Saturday. But PJ went for his planned run south from Dewey Beach towards Indian River Inlet and beyond anyway. His girls followed him down the stairs and, after he left, lingered by the front door for awhile, waiting and watching.
I saw the girls from the top of the stairs and snapped a quick picture -- just because Greyhound ears amuse me to no end.
