7 a.m. on a local canal walk
One of the great delights of leisure is walking. I am blessed, in the area that I live in, that there are lots of lovely walks, not only for the formerly sedentary, but also for the more active walkers.

Many of the best walks are around our local canals, that seem in pretty good repair.

It is nice to walk for an hour each morning, very quickly getting away from the hurly-burly. The pleasures of spotting wild rhubarb, and even a forest of Japanese knotweed on the banks of the local river, which runs right by the local canal. The key to my latter-day enthusiasm will be if I can continue to walk even in the rain.
