Is this normal?

Okay so last night, at around 8 I was driving home from a buddy's house. He lives .6 miles away from my house. It was 76 degrees F, give or take. Well after I drove it and parked I noticed water dribbles in the road that led to my tail pipes.

I looked under one and saw this:


See the water?

I then looked at the ground to see this:


The liquid was clear and had no smell. My guess is condensation. There wasnt much humidity outside, and it seemed to have not done that after driving it 3.6 miles today

That is normal. The engine pumps air and it turns to condensation in the exhaust. The first trip probably started to fill the exhaust.
