Walking 37:00 [1]

With W behind Concord Hospital after some x-rays. Rabbit's warren of paths,
got back to original trail head with some guessing, sense of direction & finally seeing The Ledges.

Kayaking 35:00 [1]

From Old Stumpfield launch. Took W as an expt. Last time she went with us, she was a pup. I thought she might be mature enough to be a fun companion. Beth out of picture with difficulty getting in but mostly out of the kayak. Got W in with the chance help of two fishermen, father/son, who were waiting to use the launch ramp. The father put her in the bow. She seemed ok there but not comfortable. Kept near the shore in case... And then she did - jumped in, didn't have to swim far at all before her feet hit bottom, her first time in water over her head. I tried to get her in the back with me - no dice and she wouldn't follow along on the shore so I had to walk her back to car and return for kayak. It wasn't very far and path was ok as I'd walked it with Beth & W on several occasions in past. No more dog kayak episodes, not worth it. Looks like an ad for DD but just a coincidence in hassle of getting stuff aboard, with dog as well, and away from launch ramp while I could.

"Thanks but no thanks"...

Not the greatest thing to be doing for a punk back but so be it.

Walking 55:00 [2] 1.4 mi (39:17 / mi)

To Pawtuckaway to see the boulder field. Had been many years, so foggy I don't recall crystal clear. Trail head at Round Pond, walk only 0.5 mi. None of the 5 or so giant boulders photoed well but they are indeed impressive -scattered about an old hemlock forest. I could see hundreds of meters in many directions. A most impressive display of granite. There were some young boulder enthusiasts there as well. Forgot to bring the Garmin.

Back is out of sorts, evidently from too much work, bending/twisting etc on the boat - the only work I do that can be considered "out-of-sorts". It's actually audible and I can feel what must be bone motion w/o any significant pain or much change in usual feedback - some pain, maybe more stiffness, esp in morning or after a nap. Will have it x-rayed.
