Today's walk report: 021714

Sunset walk.

After a few days of hardy walking we decided to do a nice short walk, 5.3 km (3.29 miles), and recuperate a bit.

We said hi to a couple of neighborhood cats and discussed people who are still inclined to consider domestics felines as outdoor pets. If you love your cat make it an indoor pet. Follow this link so you can understand this if you don't already know.

From Wikipedia

The folklore surrounding black cats varies from culture to culture. In Great Britain, black cats are seen as lucky and are often given in token form to brides. The Scottish believe that a strange black cat's arrival to the home signifies prosperity. In Celtic mythology, a fairy known as the Cat S├Čth takes the form of a black cat. Black cats are also considered good luck in Japan. Furthermore, it is believed that a lady who owns a black cat will have many suitors. However in Western history, black cats have often been looked upon as a symbol of evil omens, specifically being suspected of being the familiars of witches, and so most of western and southern Europe considers the black cat a symbol of bad luck, especially if one crosses paths with a person, which is believed to be an omen of misfortune and death. In Germany, some believe that black cats crossing a person's path from right to left, is a bad omen. But from left to right, the cat is granting favorable times.

Onto the sunset...

and for Docken, here's what was on the other side.
