I've paddled the Saco in the canoe (with my daughter) but am getting too decrepit to slide into the kayaks. Even with the canoe, my knees stiffen up so much i need someone to steady the canoe when I groan my way back out after a paddle. Maybe at 85 I should not complain and be glad that I can still do it at all.
    Good for you still doing that at 85 Dave, I'll be happy if I can still kayak at 75 .

    The Saco river has a lot of beautiful spots, I'd love to kayak on it some time.

    It took a few days for those shin splints to clear up, but I'm now back to walking with the weight vest when we walk the nature trail. I started back with 15 lbs for a couple of days, then moved it back to 20. So far I've done 8 walks with the vest and I'm getting used to it. I'm going to stick with 20 lbs for the time being. That's 22 lbs when you add it the 2 lbs that the vest weighs by itself without any weights. So with my current weight of 210 lbs, that a little over 10% of body weight. I'm feeling pretty good about this. Glad I bought the thing.

    That sounds great trade. How are you finding it on your knees?
    Are you getting the results you expected?

    The past days have been great walking days. Today is dull and rainy but I did get a good shot of these geese.
    The other day I saw two muskrats fairly close. Those things are cute. A grey heron was flying about but I missed getting a shot. Perhaps next time

    Yes I do walk for 20 to 30 minutes daily. Walking has lots of health benefits, especially it is good for your heart. It is one of the best cardio workout. I feel very fresh after walking and it helps to keep my body active the whole day. When I have started walking, I felt very tired but day by day I used to for this. Really walking is the solution for many problems. This will also help for increasing appetite. So do walking!

    Good for you Ralph. You are absolutely right. It is a great cardio workout which can be very enjoyable and something that can be worked up to. A short walk is better than no walk and each week you can increase it slightly. Itís also got great psychological benefits. Since walking increases feel good chemicals in our brain like serotonin and dopamine as well as adrenaline then it has a positive impact on our mental well being and our moods. This can be life changing for some.
    I canít imagine my life without walking.

    The other day I found a riverbank full of wild periwinkle

    Rivers are running deep and wide and muddy from collecting all the runoff
