I'm thankful because ...
-- we were able to spend a few weeks in Canada just recently, and celebrated an early Thanksgiving with my family, including my 93-year-old grandmother who has been car-free for many years now. She still gets around to many places by walking.
-- while in Canada, we were able to cycle with my father, who is in his early 70s but still cycles good distances at a brisk pace ... I have to work to keep up with him sometimes.
-- we have found ourselves a lovely house in a beautiful area which is already providing us with more and varied cycling and walking opportunities ... and a little bit less driving.
-- it is spring, and I'm looking forward to a summer of a variety of outdoor activities. We should have the rest of our sports equipment out of storage soon!!
