Long weekend cut short after last night’s Zoom revealed that an elderly family member is having long unmasked indoor visits and meals with younger relatives from another household who tell the senior it’s safe because they’re not sharing food or sitting closer than 12 feet. Dr. ‘Bent will make an emergency house call tomorrow with N95 masks and basic education.

Paddling (Canoe) 2:26:01 [1] 11.22 km (4.6 kph)

Easy paddle on the Beaver River with 'Bent, heading upstream from Epping until we felt like turning around.

The Beaver Valley is flooded so we weren't limited to paddling on the river. We could go exploring in the forest and catch up with the river later on! Our GPS track shows us paddling happily through the woods in a few places. :)

It turned into a nice day - a little chilly heading north into the wind on the way back.

We saw a bald eagle but it took off before I could get a good photo. This was the nest; the bird waited on a nearby tree in hopes that we wouldn't notice the nest, I guess. A little difficult when it was 2 meters in diameter.

We saw a couple of muskrats and several pairs of trumpeter swans.

There were plenty of Canada Geese too but they were better at social distancing than they usually are.

Nobody else was on the water, which was nice since this is often a busy stretch of river.

7 PM


This was our 2nd consecutive Zoom Passover Seder with 'Bent's family. Who would have imagined this?

I just learned that Running Free Orangeville is closing in early April. So is the Salomon Toronto store that sponsored me for years. Both stores are suggesting that we shop online but I'll miss talking to knowledgeable clerks and trying things on. This is just a tiny inconvenience in a global pandemic but it looks like my new normal will include ill-fitting shorts and shoes that are too tight - in addition to awesome immunity, I hope.

Running (Trail) 1:20:57 [2] 7.64 km (10:35 / km) +187m 9:26 / km
shoes: Salomon SpikeCross - 2nd pair

Run-walk around Palgrave East for the Street Artistry challenge in the Spring Scavenger Hunt. I don't spend much time on roads - especially not urban roads where artists might paint murals or cool graffiti. I thought about driving to Orangeville to run around their Art Walk of Tree Sculptures.

But that didn't seem Covid-friendly and I'm still testing whether my injured right foot can run so I decided not to pound it on concrete.

Instead I pounded it on ice. There was also mud and even a few dry sections but there was a surprising amount of ice.

Palgrave Forest has plenty of Mother Nature's art.

It is also decorated with painted rocks and a large community of fairy houses.

My right heel was mildly painful when running but it's also mildly painful when I'm walking around the house. It doesn't seem that short runs make it worse but it's the long runs that I really miss. I hope I can get back to them.
