Sea Kayaking in Baja

I spent one week paddling from Loredo down to Agua Verde with Outwardbound. It was a great time and a great way to learn to sea kayak. I was a little disappointed by the lack of challenges. I didn’t think the paddling was tough nor was the camping.

After the Outwardbound trip I traveled up the cost a little. Staying on various beaches and enjoying the sun, surf and Coronas.

Daly down the stairs

This morning I watched my dog Daly fall down the stairs.

I was washing some dishes and heard Daly coming up the stairs. I looked down and saw her slip down one step and then slowly slip and slide down the rest of the stairs. The whole while she was looking up at me with eyes begged for an explanation.

Unfortunately, the only answer is she is getting older. At 12 years old her muscles aren’t as strong as they once were and the arthritis in her joints makes it harder for her to use the muscles that are left.

I wonder how much longer she will be happy and not in too much pain.
