Day 1204 -- Cobourg

I love The World's Largest Collection of the World's Smallest Versions of the World's Largest Things, but they don't really have a research department. If someone claims to be the "world's largest", they believe it. They list as the World's Largest Apple the one in Cordelia, Georgia, which Wikipedia says is "7 feet high". I don't know whether that includes the pedestal.

I can't find the actual measurements for the apple near Cobourg, ON, but according to Roadside America, it has an "observation deck on top, and a restaurant inside". That's bigger than 7 feet high. The photo of the Cobourg apple, above, comes from nonamedufus.

The photo of the Cornelia apple, below, comes from notduck.

When I hit the track this morning, it was basically 100% humidity. It wasn't actually raining, but there was a thick fog, and dew was forming on things as I watched. The fog lifted a little during my ten 800 m intervals, but it was still humid enough for me.
